Storyline

In 2011, twenty-year-old Saeed, an engineering student, left Damascus for Douma (eastern Ghouta) and took part in the Syrian revolution. He will be joined later by his friend Milad, a painter and sculptor, then a student of fine arts in Damascus. In Duma liberated by rebels, revolutionary enthusiasm wins youth, then it is war and siege. For more than four years, Saeed and Milad film a daily newspaper punctuated by bombings, children who grow in the ruins we graze, laughter, a sniper who thinks of his mother, music, death, madness, youth, trouble, life. Radiography of an unsubmissive territory, a look of exceptional density on the war in a movement of cinema and humanity striking. Written by Arizona Distribution
