Sinopsis / Synopsis

Reda tiene 26 años. Sus sueños de escapar del campo de refugiados de Ain El-Helweh se ven frustrados después de tres años atrapado en Grecia. Regresa, adicto a la heroína, a la vida en un campamento desgarrado por las luchas internas y la invasión de la guerra de Siria. Contra todo pronóstico, decide casarse con su novia de la infancia; una historia de amor, agridulce como el propio campamento.

Reda is 26 years old. His dreams of escaping the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain El-Helweh ended in failure after three years trapped in Greece. He returned with a heroin addiction to life in a camp being torn apart by internal strife and the encroachment of war from Syria. Against all odds he decides to marry his childhood sweetheart; a love story, bittersweet as the camp itself.
