Princess Nilufer suddenly lost her daughter Tatiana, who died of cystic fibrosis at the age of sixteen. For her mother and grandmother Irina, it is a time of revolt and prostration. But the night calls for the dawn and the two women, leaving behind the splendour of princely life, are going to commit themselves without counting the cost to charity work to help suffering children: fundraising, creation of an association... From the shores of the Bosphorus to the Georgian mountains, the story of an incredible journey, full of obstacles, for the love of children, for the love of Tatiana. Commitment rewarded by the International Life Award, an award that Mother Theresa, Queen Rania of Jordan and Professor Barnard have received.
