«It’s the middle of the night. You’re crowded in a dinghy with 41 others, many fleeing the horrors of conflict in Syria. You abandoned your home in Afghanistan after a bomb killed your parents and left you, a teenager, with five young children to care for.
You're leaving Turkey and heading for the distant lights of a Greek island, to seek sanctuary in Europe. But then the Greek police find you. They beat and rob you and your fellow passengers, slash the dinghy with a knife, take the motor, push you back in the direction of Turkey – and leave you at sea.
