This is a crossover music video–mini drama. Using music from Rags the Musical, it takes on the journey of all people who have to leave their homeland behind due to any kind of racial atrocity, political force or economical hardship. It’s about the struggle that is universal and the dreams and hopes for the upcoming generations; a very timely subject, as migration and exodus is globally a major issue we have to face.There are millions involved,but we shall see the individual faces. Dedicated to the Father of Zoi Florosz, who as a child was taken from his village in Greece by the Red Cross through the Greek Civil War to Hungary where he grew up.
