'We Are Blood' is a short documentary that takes us on a rare intimate journey inside a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh. We begin to understand the plight of a diminishing people through the eyes of a preschool teacher who brings the spirit of play to children enduring the biggest refugee crisis of our time. We come to know Noor Kaida, a bright young Rohingya woman who describes her life in a 'birdcage' while she smiles in the hope of being seen. We see how the children are a wonder and a beacon of hope contrasted sharply to the suffocation of a world without possibility.
