In refugee Ali escaped from Afghanistan because of the Taliban. He drove to Pakistan took a plane to Jataka, then he took a boat to Australia. He got picked up by the border force then he flew to Darwin for a meeting with the Australian government after that he was flown to Woomera and taken into detention. One of the main events in refugee is when the Taliban came to his house in Afghanistan to make him go to war but ended up killing his father. Another event was the boat trip to Australia that made Ali never want to see the water again. One quote he said that I think is important is ”I have no tears to cry with: I think the ones who died have gone where we are all going very soon” this quote was on page 24.
