Feature film director Sue Clayton meets an Afghan teenager who has lived happily in the UK but at 18 is brutally deported back to a war zone he scarcely recognises. She gave him a camera to carry on filming. How will he survive? "It's like a jungle, innit.."

Hamedullah has just turned 18. Like many other young asylum seekers in the UK upon his 18th birthday he is arrested in a terrifying and brutal dawn raid. First held without trial, he is then flown out on a secret 'ghost flight' where he is dumped in his native home country, Afghanistan. Taking with him a camcorder, he records his penniless arrival in the war zone he fled as a child, alone and scared; with no friends, family or home.
