In 2014, Save the Children released the short film 'Most Shocking Second a Day,' which was a reminder that just because the horror isn't happening here, it doesn't mean it isn't happening. Since it was released, it has been viewed over 53 million times on YouTube and won a multitude of awards including a Cannes Gold Lions.
Save the Children has now released a follow-up video that has a similar but effective format. The new film picks up where the previous one left off, following the story of a young girl forced to leave behind everything she’s ever known after a hypothetical war breaks out on the streets of London.
The video highlights the terrifying reality for thousands of children fleeing conflict, as seen through a child's eyes, following 12-year-old Lily as she escapes the UK to embark on a dangerous journey in search of a new life..
