STORY DESCRIPTION:

Lota e Tigist, due ragazze che vivono in paesi molto diversi come Bangladesh e Etiopia sono unite dallo stesso difficile viaggio. Entrambe provengono da villaggi in zone rurali e hanno vissuto povertà o abusi. L?unica possibilità per loro è la fuga verso inquietanti magalopoli, Dacca e Addis Ababa. Un viaggio parallelo in cui entrambe incontrano i loro destini e le loro speranze.
Nonostante la dura realtà delle loro vite Lota e Tigist hanno una grande forza interiore, grande dignità e speranza nel futuro. Sono fuggite dalla povertà dei loro villaggi e si sono ritrovate in condizioni perfino peggiori ma, nonostante tutto, non smettono di lottare per una vita che, forse domani, sarà migliore.

Lota and Tigist, two girls living in two different countries, Bangladesh and Ethiopia, are linked to each other by a similar difficult journey. They both come from rural areas and have faced either poverty or abuse. Therefore, running away is their only solution. Their next destinations are the metropolitans of Dhaka and Addis Ababa. They embark on parallel, incredibly harsh journeys through which they meet their destinies and hopes. Yet, despite their tough lives, they reveal an inner strength and great dignity. They come from poverty, fall into even worse conditions, but they never give up striving to improve their conditions. Both fight for a life that ? maybe tomorrow ? will become better.
