Acruel war has taken two brothers’ home. Their mother protects them under her arms and fosters the seed of their new life, anxious her sons could come into danger if they leave the house. But the boys chase their dream to play a music instrument they’ve fallen in love with. A beautiful Oud. They collect scrap metal to earn the money and must find out that their mother’s fear was for a good reason. But as strong birds will always fly, the two boys become one to overcome their trauma.
