Raghad is a young Syrian refugee girl in Sweden. Her life experience, complex and difficult has always been illuminated by the love for the music. Whether are sacred songs or, even better, a song of her favorite band, A-Ha “Hunting high and low”. One day Morten Harket, the leader of the band, knocks on her door: for her this is a dream come true, but above all an opportunity to express herself completely and to be definitively understood.
