With 3 balls of wool (how the world twists and turns)

Henriqueta Cristina · Yara Kono

A family moves to another country in search of a freer place where all children can go to school. However, although different, the new country in which it makes its home is far from perfect and in this grey new world, the lack of freedom is felt even in things as simple as choosing the colour of the sweater you want to wear in the morning...

With the same old colours, the same colours as ever, this mother gets down to work and raises a small revolution in the city!

Based on actual events, this story is inspired by the experiences of a Portuguese family who fled the Estado Novo dictatorship in the late 1960’s and lived a life of exile in several countries.
