User Reviews

 
Very moving and superbly animated
12 December 2018 | by borgescoelhoSee all my reviews

Its a child's perspective of a problem created by grown ups. While the child is Palestinian, I dont find it to be biased, it simply portrays a reality that unfortunately many children have to live in. The real live stories are beautifully animated in stop motion and illustration, simply stunning.
