A TALE OF SURVIVAL AND WONDER
After losing their home during the Syrian Civil War, 12-year-old Leila and her mother Samar start a new life in the United States. As they struggle with Islamophobia and anti-refugee sentiment, Leila begins to experience visions of otherworldly entities from Syrian folklore. Unsure of her sanity but fearful of deportation, Leila embarks on a journey to discover the secret of these beings and the hidden world they inhabit. In the tradition of Pan’s Labyrinth and When a Monster Calls, this is a bittersweet story of survival and wonder.
