Synopsis:Paper cutouts and origami bring to life the tale of a Mother who is willing to endure extreme punishment at the hands of her brutal captors to secure freedom for her children. While imprisoned the Mother comforts herself by making an origami menagerie that comes to life and inspires her own flight from their paper holocaust. Culled from the actors' and director's own diverse refugee experiences from Vietnam to Mexico and Turkey, the film is a parable of war, hope, and transcendence.
