5. Good Will – Matěj
Tereza Reková

6. Yusra Swims for Her Life – part one: Escape
Brit Jensen, Magdalena Sodomková 

Yusra, 18, left Syria with her sister via the so-called Balkans route. When their boat, overloaded by people smugglers, got into difficulties, she jumped in the water and swam three and a half hours to the Greek cost. Indeed, her sister also managed it and both Syrian girls saved their lives. 


7. Ilhem Is Looking for Love for Ever
Ivan Studený 

A story narrated by a newly married couple teeters on the border between naivety and faith. It is the proud dream of an Arab girl, who as a young child discovered masculine rigidity and disrespect for all women. It is Arab unconditional love and sacrifice that have charmed a Czech man who has frequently stumbled. It is a struggle of binding traditions and liberating faith in divine sovereignty, a struggle between people from disparate cultures but also inside a single person. 


8. Crossing the Limits
Tereza Reková 

She didn’t want to discuss the refugee crisis. She didn’t want to come into bloody conflict with her nearest and dearest. She didn’t know what to think about the subject. She spent so long avoiding articles on the internet that she decided to visit the Bapska–Berkasovo border crossing and learn the truth at close hand.
