Very beautiful, inspirational and poetic!
I thought that our 10yo son would be bored (there were mostly only adults on the show), but he watched with great pleasure and he really liked it

A very peculiar, colorful show! I liked it, I recommend it a lot. Who doesn’t understand what is it about, read about the Sufi order.
