The Way of Marwan it is made of courage and memory. Marwan is a child who, along with millions of other human beings, crosses seas and deserts, fleeing war and hunger, in search of another place. A step and another step, a frontier, the mother's voice and so Marwan walks, leading the reader by the hand, towards freedom.
