With this ingratitude between the human and the earth, we must ask ourselves again about the meaning of the homeland word ?
During a short visit to Sharjah – a city in UAE – the director discovers that despite the fact that the city is Arabic, few Arabs live there. There's a majority of Pakistanis and Hindi. However, they appear there living in harmony and abundance and strange silence, which made him wonder what's the meaning of the word "homeland" and how come they do not live in such peace in their homelands.
