    In 2014, in response to a humanitarian emergency, Uruguayan President José Mujica launched a government program to host Syrian war refugees settled in Lebanon. This film follows the lengthy adaptation process of two Syrian families from the very first meeting between filmmaker and main characters in a refugee camp in Lebanon, as they leave their landscape and traditions behind, in order to begin life anew, in a small, faraway country about which they knew nothing, called Uruguay.
