Available online from 21. July 20:15h

We leave the safety of the TV couch to dive, with appropriate social distancing, into new and unknown worlds: from an excessive night of partying to the confines of the religious everyday. We follow two children on an expedition into a dark adult world and are confronted with the aftermath of the war in Syria, as it upends lives and worlds.
