The film is about her longing to her loved ones as she tries to make a place for herself in the world of the dis-placed. Her family still in Syria, Maisa's true love (fiancé) is in the Netherlands. As of the current EU-Turkey border regime, to unite is very challenging. Not giving up, Maisa works hard for her vision to transform the borders; by building a multicultural community “The oriental Istanbul Mosaic Choir”, a diverse family that sings together. In which she believes through music and love one can heal the wounds of her people and children.
