This short animation tells the story of Saoussan, a young girl struggling to adjust to life in Canada after being uprooted from her wartorn homeland. She has come to seek a quieter and safer life, although memories of war and death linger, memories that are awakened when the children at her new school prepare for a scary Halloween. From Far Away speaks to the power within us all to adapt like Saoussan and to welcome a newcomer.

Part of the Talespinners collection, which uses vibrant animation to bring popular children’s stories from a wide range of cultural communities to the screen.

    What I just viewed offers me a new understanding of how kids who just came to a new country feel like and what it is like having to learn a new language. This film helps bring attention to the fact that when someone doesn't know the language that they are being taught in it's hard to communicate how they feel so you should always help them out in any way you can. I value this film because they bring attention to a real world problem.
