    • Synopsis
    • Cynical stand-up comedian Hassan
      and Afghan veteran Mourad travel to
      war-torn Syria to search for their younger
      brother Yasin, who got lost after
      crossing the border from Azraq in Jordan
      to Daraa in Syria. The two reluctant
      brothers try to stay out of the
      conflict to bring Yasin home as quickly
      as possible, but they get involved
      themselves. Does the journey bring
      the brothers closer to each other and
      re-unite the family? Or will the war tear
      them further apart?
