Prayer for a Home. Documentary. Latvia, 2015

Prayer for a Home shows how everyone needs shelter and a home — people in Latvia, Europe and the troubled regions of the world alike. The film relates the story of the excellent Latgale poet Anna Rancāne and her family — her daughter Terēze, grandson Daniel and Daniel's father Dara Muhammad Ali —  who are trying to stick together despite unfortunate circumstances. Even though Terēze and Anna are Catholic while Dara is a Muslim from Kurdistan, their love transcends religious, national and cultural prejudice. However due to things outside their control the family is not destined to be together, despite doing everything they can to stay close.
