Mirado is from Afghanistan; he was sent to safety while his father stayed to fight a war. Now, he’s a favorite performer for a traveling circus, playing his father’s flute. But the flute is starting to crack. Around Mirado, night skies light up with festive fireworks; the sea sparkles blue and wide; faces blur. Home calls, and Mirado will answer, no matter the challenges involved in getting back. His is a lovely, melancholy tale about the magic of returning.
