One theme that stood out to me was sort of the theme of new found hope. In the film everybody had a devastating story to tell of losing a loved one or not being able to find certain family members. Then when this group came to help refugees find loved ones that they'd lost there was a nice sense of relief in everybody because there was actually a chance to find family members. At one point near the end of the film one of the women said "I can die now because I know where my family is." Refugees United is just like a big relief to everybody because it's already hard enough for them to live in those conditions, but it makes things a lot easier knowing that you can have your family by your side.
