This breathtaking animated feature was an official selection at Cannes and made its North American premiere at Toronto International Film Festival. The film intersperses Gibran's elegant poetry within stunning animated sequences. Set in a Mediterranean sea-side village, Kamila cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa, but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra, out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa's return home --- but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will incite rebellion.
