Screenings

Synopsis

A mother protects her two young sons from violence when the family is displaced by conflict, and explains that whenever a house is destroyed, a flower appears that, when transported to another place, will grow a new home. Carrying this myth with them in their hearts, the boys and their mother create a new life. But the many dangers of war are never far away, and a terrible accident means the boys must depend on their mother’s strength once again.
