The story of a crying girl whose brother suddenly tells her to pack their things and leave their house. Under the fire of guns and tanks, her brother tells her that they are going on a trip. He describes their journey as an adventure and asks her little sister to remain brave and strong since that’s how explorers are supposed to be.
They reach the sea and become sailors. Their boat sinks and they become fish. They survive, no matter what.
“You Are an Explorer” is a brief take on the devastating issue of war, refugees, and asylum seekers. A story about the people – particularly kids – who have become victims to the ugliness of war and yet pursue their right to a better future.
