Description

Rosie Ming, a young Canadian poet of mixed Chinese and Persian ancestry, is invited to perform at a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran. Once in Iran Rosie finds herself confronting memories of her past, the Iranian father she assumed had abandoned her, and the nature of poetry itself. An unwitting journey of forgiveness, reconciliation, and understanding – this animated feature is an attempt by its Asian Canadian filmmakers to build bridges between cultural and generational divides.

Executive Produced by Sandra Oh (GREY’S ANATOMY), this ambitious animated film features original poetry by a host of prominent artists.
