Hope Road is a feature documentary which lifts the veil on what life can be like for a refugee caught between two worlds. A refugee from the Sudanese civil war, Zacharia lives in south-west Sydney with his wife and daughter. Like many others who are forced to leave their homeland Zac wants to give something back and improve the lives of people he left behind. His dream is to build a much-needed school in his home village, now part of the new nation of South Sudan. For support he enlists the backing of a group of dedicated Aussies who join him on a 40-day charity walk from the Queensland border to Sydney to raise funds for this venture. But life disrupts the best-laid plans, and Zac has to draw on all his resources to keep his dream alive.

Hope Road is being released Australia-wide in cinemas after successful screenings at Sydney and Melbourne film festivals. It will screen on September 13, at Event Cinemas, Manuka at 6.30pm. Director/producer Tom Zubrycki will attend and hold a QandA after the film.
