Little Naz lives in a Middle Eastern country.  War breaks out and his family is forced to flee.  However, there isn’t enough money for everyone to leave and Naz’s parents send him to his brother to London alone.  Naz imagines that he is Sinbad the Sailor crossing deserts, mountains and seas with Krysia as his only source of company.  Krysia is a girl, who is also going to London.  In his suitcase, Naz carried with him the stories that his father would tell him.

The production is part of the Union's of Theatres of Europe EU programme "Conflict Zones".
