HOW CAMELS BECOME LIONS depicts the urge to find freedom.
Through 4 episodes we see 4 family members in a moment when they are tired of being a camel, as a beast of burden. They realize their tasks are meaningless and find themselves in a spiritual desert.
The camel wants to become a lion. A spirit that fights against the false values in order to find his own place, his own freedom. Vincent, Renée, Alice and Robin are searching for the strength to undergo this transformation.
