Three short films by Syria-born filmmakers explore the consequences of eight years of conflict. Follow Marwa, Saleh and their daughter as they are displaced from their hometown, first to Idlib, then to the Turkish border. Meet Ula, torn between the prospect of a new life in Sweden and her commitment to help Syrian women in Lebanon. Visit Khaled in the loneliness of his Damascus flat, where he struggles to find inspiration for his poems, isolated in his own city, after all his friends fled.
