From an unfamiliar Greek port to the quiet streets of Uppsala, Sweden, a brave three-year-old Syrian girl Lean makes the long journey through Europe with her family to find comfort and a fresh start in a new home. Full of a child’s energy and curiosity, she takes in her surroundings between hundreds of adult legs. For every step she takes, she emanates a longed-for feeling of hope.
