The internal refugee crisis in Colombia is one of the worst in the world, yet this mounting calamity has  been inexplicably left out of the world's spotlight.  Noris Mosquera is one of the more than 1 million Black Colombians violently displaced since 1990. Her son dreams of leaving the refugee shelter for a burgeoning soccer academy in the capital city of Bogotá, and Noris will do all she can to make his dream a reality. Through her day-to-day plight, we delve into the tragedy of uprooting and discover the power of resilience.
