Confined in an airport with nothing to do and nowhere to go, the storytellers decided to use the power of words to pass the time and instill hope in the other stalled passengers. Story themes include perseverance, the value of effort, the need to establish ties with others, and the importance of happiness despite difficult situations.


Cinco viajeros atascados en el aeropuerto Heathrow en Londres durante la erupción violenta del volcán islandés Eyjafjallajökull en 2010 compartieron historias verídicas sobre personas que se sobrepusieron a la adversidad, y esta recopilación recoge 13 relatos inspiradores de los narradores espontáneos.

Los temas de los cuentos incluyen la perseverancia, el valor del esfuerzo, la necesidad de establecer vínculos con los demás y la importancia de la alegría a pesar de situaciones difíciles.
