In 2015, a death threat from the Taliban saw Afghan
director Hassan Fazili, his wife Fatima Hussaini, also
a filmmaker, and their two daughters Nargis (11) and
Zahra (6), flee from their homeland to distant Europe
in search of safety. En route, during long and uncertain
stays in various refugee camps, they draw strength from
documenting their difficult situation on their mobile
phones. Despite adversities and setbacks, they never
once lose their humanity.
