Amant and Aslan are persecuted. At stake are their lives and the life of their child. Isolated from and forgotten by the rest of the world, their pleas for help go unanswered. In search of a better life, they confine their destiny to God then attempt the impossible. On the other side of the Earth hangs a beacon of hope, where diversity is welcomed, and the scars of the past fade into comfort and indifference.
