On the evening the photo of drowned baby boy Aylan Kurdi was first broadcast on TV, the Audet-Paventi family decided to do something about it by sponsoring a family of Syrian refugees.

The film tells the story of this great year-long adventure, showing the close bonds that developed between the two families, against the backdrop of the historic migratory wave of 25,000 refugees coming to Canada. D’une mer à l’autre is narrated in the first person by the granddaughter of an immigrant, who is now committed to helping Syrians establish roots in the land that once welcomed her own grandfather.
