Storyline

In the 1930s in one of Damascus's old city neighborhoods, an area that was still under the french colonialism, comes the social life of its good hearted inhabitants with their day-by-day affairs and issues. The old distinctive traditions and norms that distinguished that specific area from others, their beliefs and views in all matters, the relations and conflicts among them, and the brawls with the french authorities are all depicted in this syrian drama show.

Beautiful and original series
4 September 2016 | by hanixxlSee all my reviews

One of the most popular Arabic series taking place in the old Damascus during the French colonialism period. Beautiful and catchy script, superb execution and lots and lots of funny moments. It has everything: the beautiful old days and its melancholia, drama, action and plenty of twists to keep you wanting to see more and more. But above all, most importantly it keeps the spirit of old Syria (including old disappearing traditions and way of life) alive though these dark moments of the sad reality. I would love to see the next series (their status is under production) but given the current issues with Syria it's hard to expect anything to become reality. If you miss Syria, if you want to remember vividly the old and beautiful times, if you want to feel just a little bit how it would have been to live during your grandfather's time, go for it. You will not regret.
