    Growing up in the Molenbeek district of Brussels amidst suicide bombings and police patrols, six-year-old friends Aatos and Amine ponder the big existential questions that have occupied thinkers and theologians since the beginning of time. Is there a higher power? Is nature a god? With refreshing clarity, the kids strip spirituality down to its basic principles and question knowledge itself. The way these children make sense of the senseless and reflect their surroundings via make-believe stands to teach adults a great deal about how and when humans become separated from their humanity.
