ThickSkin's new drama about an 11-year-old's journey to the UK as an unaccompanied asylum-seeker.
In 2002, the Kosovan War has just ended and Dritan is sent to travel across the Adriatic to find a new life in Europe. He relies on his wit and charm to make it to the UK, but when he ends up in the care of social services, he realizes his journey has only just begun.
'HOW NOT TO DROWN' is performed by an ensemble cast starring Dritan Kastrati.
“This is one refugee story – but of course, the pain and struggle that Kastrati has lived through are not unique...As drama, it may not be perfect – but this is a bleak picture of the reality that they risk so much to win.”
