Australian Story - Stranger on the Shore (Jessie Taylor)

Jessie Taylor is a human rights barrister who grew up in a comfortable 'right wing' middle class Melbourne family. Her mother Jillian was opposed to asylum seekers who she saw as queue jumpers. But when Jessie spots fourteen year old Jaffar Ali, unaccompanied and behind bars in an Indonesian detention centre, she offers him her phone number in case he ever makes it to Australia.
What then unfolds changes the lives and attitudes of everyone in unexpected ways...
