Ibrahim is a refugee who has been living in Berlin together with his wife and son since the 80s. He recently entered a struggle with his feelings of responsibility towards his family back home who have immense difficulties because of the war raging in Syria.
Wada' observes how war conditions shape people's behaviors and thought patterns into new forms; how despair and inability to find solutions drive them to search for answers beyond reality.
