Reporter Sahar Zand's documentary on fleeing Iran as a child refugee is an important and inspiring story.

Reporter Sahar Zand became an Iranian refugee at the age of 12. It was a devastating experience for Sahar, her sister and her mother, who had to leave after her father got into political trouble with the regime. From months of limbo in a Danish refugee center, to days on the run across Europe, to life in the United Kingdom, Sahar explores the complex roles, and the deceptions and sacrifices she and her female family members experienced during those often desperate days. Me, The Refugee airs Sunday, June 2, 2019 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
