Blurring the lines between fantasy and fiction, Lamya’s Poem parallels the life of the famous 13th century Persian poet Rumi and a modern day Syrian girl fleeing Aleppo named Lamya. Their lives are separated by 800 years but they become bridged in a crumbling Dreamworld full of hyena like warriors and ancient monsters. As the veils between each of their worlds thins, Rumi tries to help Lamya find herself as she faces life as a refugee.
