About Short Film Showcase:
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.

Due to escalating violence in his home country, Zain was granted asylum in the United States and has settled in New York City with his family. Eager to adjust to life in America, the 13-year-old and his siblings are attending a “refugee summer camp” that will help them improve their English language skills.
