Trinidad and Tobago is home to over 7,000 asylum-seekers and refugees, including parents who have fled to protect themselves and their children. Set against a frank conversation about diversity in Trinidad and Tobago, ‘Lifted’ follows a day in the lives of a refugee family as they journey to a Moko Jumbie lesson.
