As the Syrian Civil War began to slowly bear down on Damascus, its residents were forced to decide whether to stay and protect their homes or to flee and leave everything behind.. Some residents appear perpetually ready to leave, but seem to be staying nevertheless. They ask themselves how many artillery shellings are too many. The simple act of deciding which family heirlooms to pack carries a sense of loss. Some who had hoped to have finally found home, recognize fleeing as part of a pattern they've experienced throughout their lives in the Middle East. They are unsure if they will have the energy to rebuild from nothing again.. As they reflect on their experiences, they know the loss of what they are leaving behind, but not where they are going. Some feel they have become vacant like their spaces, or haunted by what they've already forgotten.. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival.. "[An] eloquent meditation on the physical, emotional and psychological toll of displacement." – Toronto International Film Festival
