This film is the disturbing story of what happens to children when they seek asylum in Britain. Every year, thousands of children come from all over the world to Britain seeking refuge from persecution, terrorism and war. But many find this country is not the place of safety that they hoped. Instead they are met by a culture of disbelief and an asylum system that can cause them profound psychological and physical harm. Through the stories of a 10-year-old Iranian boy, a 16-year-old Afghan and a 22-year-old Ugandan woman, this film explores the experiences of young people who have been brutalized by the British asylum system. It's a shocking story. It was first shown on Channel Four Dispatches on Monday 29th November 2010.

With Q&A with Clare Sambrook and Rachel Seifert
