A family moves to another country in searchof a freer place where all children can go to school. However, althoughdifferent, the new country in which it makes its home is far from perfect andin this grey new world, the lack of freedom is felt even in things as simple aschoosing the colour of the sweater you want to wear in the morning...
With the same old colours, the same coloursas ever, this mother gets down to work and raises a small revolution in thecity!
Based on actual events, this story isinspired by the experiences of a Portuguese family who fled the Estado Novodictatorship in the late 1960’s and lived a life of exile in several countries.
