A small village looted in darkness, a family forced to flee... The two oldest children, Kyona and Adriel are quickly separated from their parents facing the road of exile alone. They embark on a heroic journey, which takes them from childhood to adolescence in search of shelter, peace, and the hope of finding refuge and their family. Crossing a continent torn apart by war and migrant persecution, these courageous siblings survive incredible challenges, before reaching a new world, free at last.
Dedicated to “all those who, one day or another, leave their homeland in the hope of finding a better future somewhere else,” THE CROSSING is also an homage from the director to her own mother and grandmother, forced to leave Odessa in 1905 to flee the pogroms. A film comprised of striking, animated paintings with universal qualities that speak of exile and the road from childhood to adolescence.
