    • Synopsis
    • In Antioch, courtyards are separated from the streets by high walls and their doors are always closed. In Antioch, every courtyard is a world in and of its own. Among its inhabitants are Turks, Arabs, Christians, Jews, Armenians, Assyrians, Greeks, Alawites, Sunni Muslims... And a different language is spoken in every courtyard.
      Eleni is a beautiful yet rather unkempt 27 year-old woman of Greek origin. She has three daughters aged nine, seven and five. Since her husband’s death she has been alienated by her neighbours. Men have stopped speaking to her to avoid gossip, while women do the same to keep her away from their husbands. Imprisoned in her courtyard with her daughters, Eleni contrives excuses to go to her neighbours every evening for some conversation.
