When the bomb comes the first thing we do is run away; later we remember that we didn't look back. We did not bid farewell to our homes, memories, photos, identity and our past lives. It’s a slot in space and time where all the Syrians are in limbos, displaced physically and mentally. For those who lost know for sure that they are now hooked in the air, haunted by memories of the past and fears of the future. This film is about the Syrians’ relation to their homes during the war.
