These 3 beautifully animated films tell the stories of 3 little girls who have very different experiences of Palestine. Saamidah lives in the US and anxiously starts her first day at school. There she discovers that her homeland does not appear on the classroom map of the world. Leila lives in the West Bank in Palestine. She rises at dawn every morning to try to get to school on time through the checkpoints. Wardi lives in a refugee camp in Lebanon  and is given the key to the family home in Gaza by her beloved grandfather. Each little girl has an important  story to tell about life as a Palestinian child. Touching. Sensitive. Hopeful.
