The Syrian war has so far caused 80,000 deaths and 800,000 refugees who have fled to Libya, Turkey and Jordan. This film is based on a true story: Aya and Fatima are two sisters who live in a village in Syria, in the epicentre of the fighting between police and shabiha, the regime’s militia. The only chance to survive for Aya and Fatima is to cross the Turkish border and seek refuge.
