Refugee Stories: It's Like a Film But if You Die You Won't Come Back
Nigerian-born Inua Ellams, a London-based writer, created the story "Dolphins" as part of "The Refugee Tales." This series of stories explores the journeys of refugees and migrants seeking safety in Britain. Ellams worked with children who have made treacherous journeys across desert and sea, and wrote the stories based on their experiences.
In this video, Ellams reads extracts from "Dolphins" and speaks about his collaboration with the children and his own background as a migrant.
