A family is forced to flee when their small village is looted one night. Soon separated from their parents, the two oldest children, Kyona and Adriel, face the road of exile alone. They embark on a heroic journey that takes them from childhood to adolescence in search of shelter, peace and the hope of finding refuge and their family. Crossing a continent torn apart by war and the persecution of migrants, the courageous siblings survive incredible challenges, before reaching a new world, free at last.
