From the director of The Lion King comes a new animated classic, based on one of the most beloved and bestselling books of all time, and brought to life by some of the most acclaimed animators from around the world. In a Mediterranean seaside village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter Almitra (Quvenzhané Wallis) out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa's return home - but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will spark rebellion. Take a journey that critics call "gloriously uplifting and life-affirming" (IndieWire), "profound" (Variety), and "a celebration of life, freedom, and the human spirit" (The National).
