Three children, refugees, must flee their countries of origin for safer ground. Their lives unfold- one during the time of Nazi Germany, one fleeing Cuba in the '90s, and one leaving Syria amidst the current chaos and violence- and, in the end, their stories intertwine in poignant and impactful ways.
