Inner conflicts from social backgrounds. A love story that fails. A boy and a girl who would never have met without their common dreams, and never have separated had it been their choice. This short film screens the journey from the girl’s house in Forn Elchebbak to the boy’s house in Tripoli. Along the way she questions war and its outcome as well as love and its reasons.

Rand is a 24 year old woman from Damascus. She moved to Beirut in 2013. She studied business administration in spite of the fact that she couldn’t manage her personal issues. She didn’t take part in any revolutionary acts in Syria so she decided to work for the revolution after she left. She currently does freelance work with various Syrian organisations.
