At school, he paints a picture showing his colourful Somalian home, covered with the harsh colours of war from which his family has fled.

When Hassan's parents put up his next picture on the wall, Hassan notices the maroon prayer mat, a bright green cushion and his sister Naima's pink dress - the new colours of home.
