Wake up on Mars
Wake up on Mars

In Sweden, a family from Kosovo faces the rejection of their asylum application. The result is the trauma of the two girls, victims of the "resignation syndrome", which plunges them into a long coma. Faced with this situation, Furkan, aged 10 and the youngest child in the family, shows incredible resilience and sets out to build a spaceship as a horizon to all possibilities.
