A symphony of transmuting words, exploding colors and patterns of life weave their way through this glorious animated coming﹣of﹣age story by Canadian Anne Marie Fleming (I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors, 35th). Rosie Ming, a Chinese-Persian poet sheltered by her grandparents, opens her life with a mystical journey to a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran, where histories and cultures – both those of Persia and those of her own past - intertwine in new ways, a visual and emotional celebration of poetry, art and self-discovery itself. Vancouver International Film Festival Best Canadian Film Award.
