The UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) has released a series of animated short films called "Unfairy Tales" designed to bring attention to the refugee stories of children and young adults.

It's part of a UNICEF initiative to highlight universal child rights, at a times when tens-of-millions of young refugees are on the move.

The short films, which can be seen on the UNICEF website, aim to give a realistic but positive impression of the extraordinary journeys they have made.

Janie Cangelosi has the story.

Duration: 1’57″
