Synopsis

In March 2011, radio host Obaidah Zytoon and her friends join the protests against the oppressive regime in Syria. Knowing that what is happening will change their country forever, the group of artists and activists begin filming their lives and the events happening in Syria. However, when the regime’s violent response drives the country into a bloody civil war, their hopes for a better future are diminished by violence, imprisonment and death. Obaidah travels across the country and witnesses the rise of extremism. A deeply personal road movie that captures the fate of Syria through the intimate lens of a small circle of friends.
