    A SYRIAN LOVE STORY

    Sean McAllister / United Kingdom / 2015 / 90 ' / Arabic / S.T. English

    Comrades and lovers Amer and Raghda met in a Syrian prison cell 15 years ago.

    When McAllister first meets their family in 2009, Raghda is back in prison leaving Amer to look after their 4 boys alone; but as the ‘Arab Spring’ sweeps the region, the family’s fate shifts irrevocably. Filmed over 5 years, the film charts their incredible odyssey to political freedom. For Raghda and Amer, it is a journey of hope, dreams and despair: for the revolution, their homeland and each other.
