Hala and her family are from the Syrian city of Aleppo. In 2012, her husband was kidnapped and she and her four children fled to Germany. Now, as the family tries to rebuild their life in a new land, nightmares of the past still haunt them.
This film comes as a special project from NORTH of New York. It was made in collaboration with Marcel Mettelsiefen, whose documentary “Watani: My Homeland” follows Hala and her family on their escape from Aleppo. “Watani” is nominated for an Academy Award.
