Synopsis

Left orphaned, hungry and adrift by shells and gunfire during the Lebanese civil war, Zozo sets off to the only other place he knows -- Sweden, where his paternal grandparents emigrated years before. He has never visited the country, but Zozo has strong images in his mind of the lush, green and peaceful Eden it must be, and these dreams draw him there on a remarkable journey. Yet it is the life he finds after he is finally reunited with his grandparents that provides his greatest challenges.
