Sudanese is the fifth installment in Nashville Public Television's Next Door Neighbors series. Refugee resettlement to the United States is often the last option displaced people have for a permanent home. The opportunity is available to less than one percent of the world's refugees. Once in the U.S., in cities like Nashville, refugees are expected to build new lives. But what if a chance to go back to their homeland finally arrives? Which home will they choose? Next Door Neighbors: Sudanese explores what happens for refugees when there is a chance to return home.
