Deep beneath the complex world of organ and tissue transplantation are the heart-wrenching stories of real people awaiting lifesaving organs in Australia. Why must they wait so long? Are changes in policy required - or shifts in perception? Is it as simple as signing up and having the conversation with loved ones? And why do we avoid the topic of death?

Blessed with astonishing power and poise, Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm and became the Royal Ballet's youngest ever principal. At the peak of his success, aged 25, he walked away, driven to the brink of self-destruction by stardom, his talent more a burden than a gift. Here is an unprecedented look into the life of a complex young man who has made ballet go viral. Urban rebel, iconoclast, airborne angel, Sergei is transforming the shape of ballet as we know it. But virtuosity comes with a high price. How can you be free to be yourself when you are ballet's hottest property?

This final episode of the series follows the fate of Nazifa and her family as they make a final attempt to reach Germany. We meet Sadiq, who took just 45 days to travel from Afghanistan to his dream destination of Finland, but the welcome he experienced when he arrived has not sustained. Across Europe, policies have changed and deals have been struck. If Sadiq's asylum claim fails, he faces forced deportation. Across the Atlantic, the USA is no longer welcoming refugees from the Middle East. President Trump's executive orders have far reaching consequences for those who were on the verge of emigrating to join family members already in the USA.

The impact of the rise of the right reverberates across Europe. Nazifa and Latif make a potentially life-changing decision. We revisit Israa and her family from the first series, who risked their lives escaping Syria in 2015 and made the terrifying journey to Europe when borders were open and refugees welcome. They're living in a flat in Germany and Israa faces her first day at school. Meanwhile, Azizula must face his fears and attempt to cross the Hungarian border, knowing it is patrolled by armed guards who use dogs to deter and attack the refugees attempting to cut through the fence from Serbia to Hungary.

Iranian-Australian Pariya has found her perfect match in Macedonian migrant, Viktor. Pariya's mother is expecting a full Persian wedding for her only child, and Viktor is keen to oblige. As the couple start to organise the ostentatious, blingy wedding, Pariya, sick of Victor not helping, hands the whole thing over to her betrothed. He must now keep his exacting fiancee and emotional mother-in-law happy, and not break any Iranian traditions along the way. When Australia legalised same-sex marriages in December 2017, pagan druid David and his Jewish partner Darren rushed to set a date. They are having a legal wedding that incorporates both of their religions. The ceremony is in two distinct halves, and sparks fly when both want control over the day.
