Project Description

Božské Jiskry

Divine Sparks


Thirteen-year-old Czech boy and a Belgian girl of the same age who meet at a roadhouse facility want to meet and talk to each other in a short time between lunch and their departure. With the help of an Arab truck driver and an African football player, they overcome the language barrier and manage to spend a few minutes without their families. Both share a modern European experience in this modest location. Divine Sparks offers a pleasant story about the power of communication and prejudices.
