Refugees flee to Australia only to be detained in squalid and abusive conditions

Following a 2013 immigration policy overhaul, the Australian government began detaining asylum-seekers at offshore immigration facilities. This animated documentary tells the story of two Iranian refugees who, after fleeing persecution in their native country, ended up as detainees in the Manus Regional Processing Centre in Papua New Guinea, where there have been numerous allegations of abuse and squalid conditions. Eventually, in February 2014, tensions between locals, detainees and guards erupted into violence that left dozens injured and one dead.
