Yaman, a young inventor, proudly reveals his greatest invention: an incredible machine that can work wonders with paper tissues and render him invulnerable. While Yaman lets his imagination run riot, the outside world turns out to be far less magical.

Combining beautiful stop-motion animation with live action, this multi-award-winning short film celebrates imagination and creativity – while acting as a powerful call for solidarity with children living in exile and poverty

The film was produced by Bidayyat for Audiovisual Arts, a not-for-profit supporting the production of documentaries, short and experimental films in Syria.
