“You Are an Explorer” is the story of a crying girl whose brother suddenly tells her to pack their things and leave their house. Under the fire of guns and tanks, her brother tells her that they are going on a trip. He describes their journey as an adventure and asks her little sister to remain brave and strong since that’s how explorers are supposed to be.
