Nickel City Smiler chronicles a refugee’s fight for survival and hope in the American rustbelt.

In Burma, Smiler Greely fought against the brutal military government, who attacked, tortured, raped and murdered thousands of the country’s ethnic
minorities. After spending more than 20 years in the confinement of a refugee camp, Smiler and his family were selected for resettlement in the United States and assigned to live in Buffalo, New York.

Nickel City Smiler documents the struggles Smiler’s family and the refugee community encounter on the streets of one of America’s poorest cities. Forced to fight against poverty, violence and bureaucracy, Smiler battles for the hope and hearts of his people.
