Amer and Raghda met as political prisoners in Syria. Noted English documentarist Sean McAllister comes into their lives at the outbreak of the revolution against the Assad regime and charts the extraordinary course of their lives over the next five years. When Raghda is released from prison and the family is forced to flee to Lebanon and then France, we start to see that not all prisons are made with steel bars.

As the couple drift in the vacuum of refugee life, they must face their feelings for each other, their children and the country they left behind. The jury that awarded this film with the Grand Prize at the recent Sheffield Docfest aptly praised it as: A Bergmanesque portrait of a relationship and love... providing a unique and intimate portrait of disillusionment.

A deeply touching exploration of the personal costs to the increasing numbers cast adrift by global conflicts.
