Each week we meet an 18-30 year old from one of Aotearoa’s refugee or migrant communities who is facing a defining moment in their life. Giving the show a 21st century twist, participants use handicams to record their thoughts, feelings and opinions giving us an insight into the unique hopes and fears this generation faces. As confident speakers of English, 2nd generation New Zealanders are able to articulate the duality of their lives: their aspirations within mainstream society, their responsibilities to their ethnic or religious communities, and the tensions and / or benefits this duality brings.
From an aspiring politician to a beauty queen and everything in between, the series presents a dynamic collection of surprising, funny and poignant personal stories about kiwis either living a culture clash or enjoying the best of both worlds.
