Synopsis
Saeed is a young cinema enthusiast who is attempting to teach young people in Eastern Ghouta, Syria all about the rules of filming. The daunting reality, however, is much too harsh for the youth to respect any rule. Meanwhile, Saeed’s friend Milad, who is studying Fine Arts in Damascus - on the other side of the fence controlled by the regime, decides to leave the capital and join Saeed living under siege. In Douma, the two set up a radio station and recording studio. They pick up the camera to film everything they can... until one day, the camera films them...
