What is it like for children to be forced to leave hearth and home? Ali and his younger brother flee Afghanistan at a young age to build a new life in Turkey with their family and many other refugees. The boys earn a living shining shoes, but when one day their spot has been taken, their already fragile existence hangs by a thread. Realistic drama illustrates the harsh life and daily obstacles of Middle-Eastern refugees as seen through children’s eyes.
