Peace Tree / Quamar

QUAMER WORKING TO LIVE
Quamer, 11, lives with her family in a one-room house in Hyderabad, India. She takes care of the household, cooks and works with her mother, as they decorate bracelets with glitzy fake gemstones. This thankless, low-paid job has damaged Quamer's thumbs and as she tells us her touching stories we discover that her dream is to go back to school.

THE PEACE TREE
In present-day Canada, Shazia (Aiishwariya Haran) is Muslim and Kylie (Jacoba Barber-Rozema), her best friend, is Christian. Both dream of celebrating each other's festivals, Eid and Christmas. Unfortunately their parents do not share their dream. This spurs them to create The Peace Tree, which "highlights the symbols from all cultures and faiths, to reflect the beauty of diversity in unity".
