    • Synopsis
    • It never occurred to Nidal and Lilibeth that the day of her arrival to Damascus-the sixteenth of March, would be the day preceding the announcement of the uprising in Syria. Moreover, it never crossed their minds that the film which speaks of the fates of Syrian women, who have declared rebellion and revolution for their freedom, would continue with other women who are now making their own revolution. Between Damascus, Sweida and Ein Al Arab we would try to gather details on the stories of the absent women and other women who would attend to present their own testimonies about themselves and about love, life, death and sometimes about the revolution. Lilibeth departs as the angst rises in Syria. Difficult months go by, friends disappear unwillingly in jails, and friends leave forcefully… and a longing to freedom, dignity and justice for which Syrians have conferred a lot of blood. Nidal moves around with his camera in attempt to record the Syrians' daily journals subjected to pain, oppression, blood and hope. Between Damascus and Copenhagen two filmmakers from two different cultures, try to tell real stories of love, life and death in the age of the revolution.
