A modern documentary tale weaving the exciting stories of talented Arab artists—migrants and refugees—forced to find new homes and who willingly settled in Bulgaria. Their striving for artistic expression gives them strength through all the hardships of life: war, death, family rejection, social restrictions. Their stories turn into a poetic visual narrative with much music, colour, and dancing.
