A SYRIAN LOVE STORY

AS A REVOLUTION SWEEPS THROUGH THE AREA, RAGHDA AND AMER, WHO MET IN A SYRIAN PRISON CELL, FIND THEIR LOVE CHALLENGED BY CIRCUMSTANCE.


In the five years the film shares with them, Syria is thrown into one of the greatest humanitarian disasters of our time.

An intimate and unusually poignant love story from the epicentre of the war, about two people who love each other and their country more than anything else. Armer and Raghda's history is an important and deeply personal reminder that behind every news item there are people just like ourselves.
