Greeks and Turks are brought up as enemies, but when Pelin and Stella met they discovered hidden within their own family pasts, shared destinies of exile, exclusion and love. These swept away what they had been taught to believe. Join Stella Kassimati, Pelin Turgut and musicians Huseyin Alpaslan and Nazli Alatli in a storytelling adventure beyond borders into our common humanity.
