A class of Syrian school children learns a new language. While telling about the boats that took them to the Netherlands, the capsizing and the seasickness, the war comes closer through their animated drawings. The animations show a child’s perspective of the war that is still raging, why they fled and the gruelling journey they had to make to a new homeland.
