Kimmo Leed’s documentary explores the world of Finnish and Lebanese children with the help of story crafting. We get to see this Finnish innovation exported to other countries by psychologist Kirsti Palonen. Through children’s stories, the film will shed light on the psyches of children in two different countries.

The film encourages us to listen, accept and appreciate. No matter what your story is like, the most important thing is to be heard.
