In the late 1990s, in the aftermath of the Bosnian War, Missouri became an important resettlement site for refugees escaping the destruction in their home country of Bosnia. There are now an estimated 50,000 Bosnian immigrants living in St. Louis — plus several hundred who have settled in Columbia. Two mid-Missouri filmmakers who followed the story of one family over five years discuss the challenges encountered by their subjects and by other refugees.
