Having fled Syria for Lebanon, a group of young refugees is invited to join in the creation of an animated short film. In this perceptive and moving documentary by Christine Doyon, we meet young people who, though they carry the burden of their past and the weight of war, nonetheless overflow with dreams and desires. Through the creative process, they explore the freedom and salvation of art.
