It's a story straight out of the movies. In 2018, William Hubbard, a podiatrist from Fitchburg Massachusetts, sent his 16-year-old daughter Aislinn to live in Ukraine, so she could train at the prestigious Kyiv Choreographic College. Four years later, he found himself unable to get her and her infant son back out. So, he recently traveled to the war-torn country to help them escape to safety. Hubbard joins us to share his harrowing experience.
