At a time of war and upheaval, a young woman from Daraa, in the south of Syria, leaves her hometown to Damascus to meet a whole new world of friends, young artists and tormented lonely women who got estranged from their families and lovers. This world, with its traumas, is strangely enchanting to Areen, who finds her emancipation through it. Areen’s feeling of connection is challenged when the characters who were Areen’s replacement for her family, start to seem either weak, in denial, or presumptuous. This is when she looks for a different kind of love, the classical love of a man and a baby. However, this too starts looking like a bubble. Up until this stage in her journey, we feel that there is something hidden or missing about Areen’s connection to her family and their relation to the place they left at the beginning of the war.
