Seeking a new home where to feel safe, fireflies embark on a difficult journey and will learn that there is always a light at the end of the way.
In the blink of an eye, the fireflies are forced to leave their field. Without a home, without food, and without a future, the fireflies made a decision. They packed their bags, and for the first time ever in the history of their species, they set off in search of the light at the end of the way. They all left together. Grandparents, children, parents ... entire families fly together and undertake the journey guided by that sparkling light that shines beyond. But it's a difficult journey, full of seemingly impossible obstacles, which only the love that binds the family together can overcome.
This emotional tale of feelings and identity leads us through the darkness into the light of a better future.
