"You've been handcuffed to the past for too long. You're holding on to things that don't exist anymore and it's dragging you under."

All profits go to the excellent Refuweegee, a local charity with a global mission. Refuweegee aims to challenge and change the perception and reception of forcibly displaced people around the world. More info at www.refuweegee.co.uk
