In Syria



Trapped inside her house in a city under siege, Oum Yazan, a mother of three, turns her flat into a safe harbor for her fami- ly and neighbors, trying to protect them from the war outside. Whilst bombs threaten to destroy the building, with snipers turn- ing the courtyards into deadly zones and burglars breaking into the building, maintaining the thin balance of routine inside the walls becomes a matter of life and death.
