The One World Film Festival in cooperation with the IOM screened the documentary One Way Ticket about a huge life change of refugees who were resettled from a refugee camp to the US. The online screening that took place on 11 November 2020 was watched by 203 spectators.

The film One Way Ticket follows the story of two friends whose hope for better life came true after 20 years spent in a refugee camp in Uganda. They leave for the US where a whole new world, people, language, food and weather await them.

The film is an account of their dreams and aspirations, and of the everyday struggles and alienation they experience in a foreign land. Their perceptions of a new life ahead meet with the reality and their story portrays how they manage to cope with it.
