    Christmas Island, off the coast of Australia: here 50 million crabs make their slow and ancient migration from the jungle to the ocean's edge, while thousands of people seeking asylum are indefinitely held in a high security detention facility. Poh Lin, a trauma counsellor living on the island, bears witness to the dramatic stories and decline of those being detained. Poh Lin works with asylum seekers in the detention centre, using narrative therapy and sand play to explore people’s stories of trauma and survival.

    Christmas Island, discovered December 25, 1643, is just a spec of land in the Indian Ocean. The annual red crab migration at the beginning of the rainy season, however, is so massive it can be seen from the air. It has been named a wonder of the natural world. This program follows this terrestrial arthropod from its rainforest burrow, across dangerous landscape to the ocean to mate. http://www.ssrvideo.com/

Christmas Island, off the coast of Australia: here 50 million crabs make their slow and ancient migration from the jungle to the ocean's edge, while thousands of people seeking asylum are indefinitely held in a high security detention facility. Poh Lin, a trauma counsellor living on the island, bears witness to the dramatic stories and decline of those being detained. Poh Lin works with asylum seekers in the detention centre, using narrative therapy and sand play to explore people’s stories of trauma and survival. Poh Lin struggles with seeing her clients getting worse due to the time spent in indefinite detention, and the uncertainty of living in limbo. In real therapy sessions with Poh Lin we encounter asylum seekers being detained and hear their stories from inside. Some speak of the families they've left behind and the journey they took to get to the island, others of waiting indefinitely and being exposed to the gradual mental collapse of their friends and family around them. Rarely leaving the detention centre, and with little idea of the natural beauty of Christmas Island, their sessions with Poh Lin are rare moments of human connection. The island's crabs come to serve as a metaphor for the ancient and timeless natural movements of migration. Their spectacle sits in stark contrast to the chaotic human movements and entrapment that become senseless and absurd – not just on this island – but around the world.

It's not an ideal situation and I feel for the refugees who are on this ship, in the heat, in containers, even though some efforts have been made to improve their situation and give them some minimum comfort, this is not a way to handle a refugee situation. Of course, the government of Australia maintains that whilst it's been very generous with refugees, it is now receiving lots of illegal and unprocessed immigrants and it sees this as an attempt to put an end to that. But that does not give comfort to the men and women and children on that boat who are in need of refuge and support. So we accept the compromise and I hope it can be implemented quite quickly so that these people can leave the ship." 4. Mid shot of media STORYLINE: A compromise has been found for the screening and the offer of asylum to over 433 mostly Afghan refugees stranded for almost a week on a Norwegian freighter in international waters off Christmas Island. Speaking at the World Conference Against Racism in Durban, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan welcomed the compromise as part of which the asylum seekers would be screened in New Zealand and the Pacific island of Nauru. The men, women and children are said to be experiencing miserable conditions and while some measures have been taken to improve conditions, Annan said it's important to implement a solution quickly so those on board could leave the ship.
