A woman, children, and an old man are barricaded into a flat in a housing estate in Damascus. The war is raging all around, a sniper is lurking in a window opposite, and dangerous individuals roam through the building. In his latest film, director Philippe Van Leeuw again shows the cruelty and pointlessness of a war conflict through ordinary, helpless civilians. This powerful anti-war drama is a disturbing study of life in Syria.
