While millions of birds migrate freely in the skies, a Palestinian woman in a refugee camp in Lebanon yearns for the ancestral homeland she’s denied. She sets a challenge to the director to find an ancient tree that stands as witness to her family’s existence – with only inherited memories, a sightless man and a two-headed dragon as guides.

This story of a 15-year friendship that stays connected across a divided land and a fragmented people, adopts a bird’s eye perspective to reflect on freedom of movement, exile and the hope of return.
