Episode 4: Amish

This is Raymond. 

Raymond's family want him to spend his life using a horse instead of a car, to live off the grid and have little contact with the outside world.

But young Raymond is curious and explores the outside world. His father reacts by moving the family into an even more isolated community.

Fast forward 20 years and Raymond is pulling espressos in Melbourne. 

How did Raymond escape? And how did he end up as a barista in Melbourne?

I felt trapped. It’s hard for a five year old to leave their family.
