CENSORED, PUBLIC VERSION OF WHERE THE HEART IS:

UNCENSORED VERSION OF WHERE THE HEART IS:

In this episode, we follow Maysam’s story. For his entire life, Maysam has lived in Dubai. His parents are from Syria, a place he hasn’t visited since he was a young child. If you ask him, the UAE is his home. But on paper it isn’t, and likely never will be. So what happens when the only place you know as home in your heart can’t be your home forever?

We’d love to hear your stories about where you call, or don’t call, home.
