The Syrian war has so far caused up to 40,000 deaths and 4.8 million refugees who have fled to Libya, Turkey and Jordan. This film is based on a true story. Aya (Dana Keilani) and Fatima (Sara El Debuch) are two sisters who live in a small village in the North of Syria, in the epicentre of the fighting between the Police and the Shabiha, the regime's militia. One day Muhammad (Abdul Ahmed), a messenger of Fatima's husband Shady, pays a visit. Having been part of the military for years, Shady has recently deserted to join the rebels of the Syrian Free Army. The consequence of this decision is a vendetta by the Secret Service and the Shabiha on Shady and his family. For Aya and Fatima the only chance to survive is to cross the Turkish border, seek refuge and wait for Shady to join them. Leaving in haste with few belongings, they are accompanied by Farid (Sami Haddad), a friend of Muhammad, who will escort them by car to the border. But getting to border is fraught with danger with numerous people having been killed in their attempts. Their trip is further complicated when Farid decides to give a lift to Bilal, a man with a mysterious past and keen to escape Syria. When Farid dies suddenly their situation seems impossible. Unable to travel alone they must unite with a man they don't trust. Only then will they have a chance to cross the border and find freedom.
