“From Far Away”: Animation link

This short animation tells the story of Saoussan, a young girl struggling to adjust to life in Canada after being uprooted from her wartorn homeland.

She has come to seek a quieter and safer life, although memories of war and death linger, memories that are awakened when the children at her new school prepare for a scary Halloween.

From Far Away speaks to the power within us all to adapt like Saoussan and to welcome a newcomer.
