Six Australians agree to challenge their preconceived notions about refugees and asylum seekers by embarking on a confronting refugee journey themselves for 25 days. Deprived of their wallets, phones and passports they board a smuggler’s boat, are rescued mid ocean, experience immigration raids in Malaysia, live in Kenyan refugee camps and visit slums in Jordan before ultimately making it to the Congo and Iraq, protected by UN peacekeepers and the US military. For some of the Aussies it’s their first time abroad. For all of them, it’s the journey of a lifetime.
 

Series 3 - Episode 3

Following a reverse refugee journey, one group visits an unofficial camp housing many of the 140,000 ethnic minority who fled their homes two years earlier. The series builds to a dramatic conclusion as the other group visits two of the most dangerous places on Earth and is fired at by ISIS insurgents. At the end of the journey the two groups are reunited in Cambodia to assess the impact of their experience.

Series 3 - Episode 2

The six Australians get a first hand experience of Australia's 'turn back the boats' policy when they're transferred from a people smuggler''s boat to an orange lifeboat and turned back to Indonesia. Then they live with asylum seekers who have been turned back by the Australian navy. One group treks through the Thai jungle to discover how asylum seekers are trafficked and sold in to slavery. The other group visits the world's newest city a refugee camp built out of the Jordanian desert and home to more than 80,000.
