A new controversial TV series seeks to raise awareness for the plight of the refugee.

A new Australian reality series tackles the much-debated subject of asylum seekers by sending six ordinary citizens on a journey retracing the steps of the ‘boat people.’

The three-part series, ‘Go Back Where You Came From’ sends the participants on a twenty-five-day journey simulating the challenges asylum seekers endure to reach Australia – in reverse;

Deprived of their wallets, phones and passports, the participants are forced to live like refugees, experiencing a trip aboard a leaky refugee boat, immigration raids in Malaysia, a refugee camp in Kenya, and squalid housing conditions in Jordan; culminating in them ‘going all the way back’ to war zones in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Iraq.
