Director's Note:

When Sami was born, the doctor told his parents: “He does not have wings like the rest of the inhabitants of Mount Nawras, and he will never be able to sprout wings. He should get used to it, even though his life will be harder”.

Everyone who suffers from a certain deficiency or disability is in need of help and support to help them integrate, communicate and discover special ways to confront their own challenges, so their life becomes meaningful. How beautiful it is to take the hands of those who need us! How beautiful it is that human brotherhood supports each other’s dreams!
