A moving tribute to immigration and the love of a family. A family is like a seed. It needs to have a place to set down roots. But sometimes the land where it rests is hard and cold, without welcome or nourishment. Then the family must fly to a new place, where it can finally blossom. As a father and daughter work together in their garden, he explains what a seed needs to flourish and the reasons their family immigrated to a new country--looking for hope, like sunlight, and peace, like good earth. Looking for a place to grow.
