This film module follows Congolese refugee Nangabire on her first day of school in the U.S. We see her sense of isolation in a new environment, where she can't speak the language and doesn't know the culture. In a conversation with her mother, she also reveals her side of the story of being separated from her mother and siblings for the past 10 years after they left the DRC as refugees.
