A new release from the renowned, high quality documentary series of ‘The Guardian’ presents the case of Aya, a Syrian teenager currently in Denmark. Aya is threatened with deportation to a place she cannot remember: under a hostile immigration system, Denmark has begun trying to send back refugees from Damascus, claiming the city is now safe under the dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad. Aya’s brothers are allowed to stay, since if they returned they would have to join the military. We join Aya at her graduation surrounded by her schoolmates, teachers, friends and family who are rallying around her as she fights to stay.
