There are currently 15 million refugees and internally displaced persons in the world - that is 15 million stories of upheaval, dislocation, want and misery. Filmmaker Lynn Raineault has documented the stories of four of the luckier ones - those who found a way out of danger and despair and who have demonstrated incredible courage in rebuilding their lives. Here is her account of the making of the fourth story in her series - that of the Tayem family's journey from Iraq to Vancouver in Canada.
