    Brief synopsis

    Français:

    Un village pillé, une famille en fuite et deux enfants perdus sur les routes de l’exil… Kyona et Adriel tentent d’échapper à ceux qui les traquent pour rejoindre un pays au régime plus clément. Au cours d’un voyage initiatique qui les mènera de l’enfance à l’adolescence, ils traverseront un continent rongé par la chasse aux migrants et devront survivre aux épreuves, à la fois fantastiques et bien réelles, avant d’atteindre un Nouveau Monde, libres.

    English:

    An animated feature film following the dramatic journey of two siblings, Kyona and her brother Adriel, who are running away, because they are being pursued by an unspecified Eastern European country. A story about the neverending effort to find a new home, where we can find a better life. An effort for which we are willing to risk our lives. On this journey of hope people overcome various perils and experience the most terrible of situations. They are fueled by the awareness of who they really are, what they are running from and what they are hopeful of. In the end an experience like that becomes a story worth telling again and again.
