The Red Shawl tells the true story of Palestinian Syrian Amer Shanati, a musician and music teacher who was forced from his home in Homs, Syria, and then smuggled himself through 10 countries and over 10,000km until he landed in The Netherlands, where he then rebuilt his life and career. We take this treacherous journey alongside Amer as well as experience his ascent as a refugee into a prominent voice for peace and justice in The Hague.
