When you live in war zone and death is hunting everyone, things will look different and choices become harder. Face your fate in an unjust war to survive with your family from the shadows of war.

Time is running against you, your family is in danger and there is nowhere to hide or to do but to get them out of home through a hero journey to a safer place.

Shooting and bombing everywhere and it will hunt you unless you make fast decisions as you progress through different events. These events are real and they will make you choose the hard way. Live or die!​

This isn't a game but a message. It is extremely clever to get a message across through a short game. People get invested and stay to hear the message. Actually pretty brilliant! Everything about this short "game" was moving and sad. Our world can be a cruel place sometimes.

It was short, sad and emotional. I was just looking to play something like this which would get over quickly so I don't care about 20 min length. Even though it was not exactly a game and was story-driven, I enjoyed it a lot more than in actual game. The music score in the background plus additional sounds actually scared me. It delivered a good message despite how sad the ending was.

Beautiful and heart touching, broke my heart... The game was made 6 years ago but even today this game is a must play! Recommended short game, this game is more like a movie telling but it is great overall. Many people don't understand that the developer of this game is P@lesta@ni@n himself, they don't know how much he struggled to make a game this amazing. He is risking his life for the message.
