The film follows the director’s journey as he is forced to join the Palestinian Liberation Army in Syria only a month before the start of the Syrian uprising. With the escalation of violence and the increasing attacks by the Syrian regime army on the camp, the director and his friends attempt to document the hopes, struggles, departures and loss they experience.
About the Director:
Samer started his academic studies in sociology at the Lebanese University in Beirut. However, his residency was withdrawn at the end of his first
year and he had to interrupt his studies. Since then, he has focused on developing his filmmaking skills. He participated in a number of training
workshops (including two workshops organized in Beirut by Bidayyat, workshops organized by Palestinian organization Jafra in Damascus) and
gained practical experience as a director, editor and photographer both in Syria and Lebanon.
