A compelling, ground-level immersion into the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time, Sky & Ground accompanies the Nabi clan, a large, extended Syrian-Kurdish family, who have been forced from their home in bombed-out Aleppo, Syria and into the Idomeni refugee camp on the border of Greece and Macedonia. Together, they must painstakingly make their way to a place they can once again call “home”. Their goal is Berlin, where they will reunite with family members and seek asylum, but first they must make the arduous and dangerous journey, on foot, through Serbia, Hungary and Austria with only each other to rely on. This powerful examination of the refugee crisis will both thrill you and warm your heart as we see the lengths families will go to in order to stay together.
