A Syrian Love Story

Amer and Raghda met and fell in love in a Syrian prison; they married and had four sons. Subsequently the family left Syria as political refugees. This documentary melodrama shows how difficult it is to clearly identify the boundaries between responsibility towards one’s family and loyalty to one’s country and ideas, which are drowning in blood.
The screening is a part of the CARTE BLANCHE by Goehte-Insitut.
Free entry to remind the begining of the Syrian Civil War on March 2011.
