synopsis
A personal story, global story, and call to action. In 1940, Paulette was a teenage refugee fleeing the Nazi invasion of Belgium. In 2018, Edith follows her motherís vivid wartime diary to retrace that journey to Calais and honor the Frenchwoman who sheltered Paulette and her family during the bombings. There she meets with Care4Calais volunteers helping in todayís refugee crisis. Bringing us close, RETURN TO CALAIS draws parallels between refugees past and present, showing how empathy joins the dots of displacement across generations and geography.
