In the fall of 2015, Steven Heighton made an overnight decision to travel to the frontlines of the Syrian refugee crisis in Greece and enlist as a volunteer. Arriving on the isle of Lesvos with a duffel bag and a dubious grasp of Greek, Heighton found himself thrown into emergency roles for which he was woefully unqualified.

REACHING MITHYMNA is a firsthand account of the crisis and an engaged exploration of the borders that divide us and the ties that bind.
