AYNY - MY SECOND EYE

A cruel war has brought two brothers’ home. Their mother protects them under her arms and fosters the seed of their new life, being anxious her sons could come in danger if they left the house. But the boys chase their dream to play a music instrument they’ve fallen in love with. A beautiful Oud. They collect scrap metal to earn the money they need. They will find out that their mother’s concern was real. But as strong birds will always fly, the two boys become one to overcome their trauma.
