The Last Refugees follows the Kalaji family, from Aleppo, Syria, as they make the arduous journey from their besieged city toward a new life in Philadelphia. Upon their arrival in January 2017, they seem lucky: They are among the last refugees before Trump’s travel ban is implemented. In a heartwarming moment, we learn that HIAS – the organization founded in 1881 to assist Jews fleeing pogroms – now welcomes persecuted refugees resettle in the United States. But the family’s victory is short-lived, as new financial and social realities set in.
