The phrase 'Peace & Love' today seems like a throwaway slogan fit for key-rings and t-shirts.
This video follows two groups of young people for whom 'Peace & Love' is something they have fought adamantly to protect.
From Jordan, a country in the Middle East encompassed by war to Ukraine, a country in Europe that has seen some of the greatest atrocities in recent history, this is the story of the young people at the centre of it all, making a positive future for themselves.
Spending time with these characters, this video was shot doco style by a core crew of three. It was an adventure!
