🎥  ISLAND OF THE HUNGRY GHOSTS - Friday 19 July 1.30pmOn an isolated island in the Indian Ocean, red crabs migrate in their millions from the jungle to the sea. A team of dedicated people are employed by the authorities to ensure they can make that journey in safety.In that same jungle there is a high security Australian detention centre where thousands of asylum seekers have been locked away indefinitely. Their only connection to the outside world is trauma counsellor Poh Lin Lee, who, with great delicacy, shows us the agony of living in limbo.DISCUSS: Refugees
