Stories too big for a case file showcases the testimonies of unaccompanied young people as they navigate ‘the system’ in the UK, a tangled web of institutions, policies and individuals who are meant to care, but often do not. Individual stories emerge from a cacophony of voices, suggestive of common problems in the UK’s hostile border regime as well as a refusal to be reduced to a singular story, endemic in bureaucratic case files. Voices evoke the violence unaccompanied young people feel when repeatedly asked, or made, to tell their story, as well as the violence of not being asked nor being heard, and most of all their strength in the face of injustices.
