“If I had a bowl of Skittles and I told you just three would kill you….”

Meet Saif, refugee & doctor, travelling to Europe, with Amira, baby Mahdi, and friend Hussan. When their boat capsizes, they’re brought to Greece.

Meet Micky, volunteer on the same Greek beach, welcoming refugees with open arms.

Meet Paul. Editor of Britain’s most xenophobic & anti-EU tabloid looking to dish dirt on refugees, and help swing the pending EU referendum.

But 2 weeks of direct personal contact with heartbreaking stories leave Micky, a seeming Mother Theresa, disillusioned.

Now as she helps Saif to cross Europe, & into the UK, both are painfully slow to realise that the other is not what they appear.

Has the agent of a paper whose mission is to divide a continent and swing the referendum finally found their scoop?

Will the last explosively ambitious scenes prove that refugees are a bowl of dangerous Skittles,
or  help them regain their humanity, avert more suffering, and bring the truth home?
