For Raghda and Amer, it is a journey of hope, dreams and despair: for the revolution, their homeland and each other. Amer, 45, met Raghda, 40, in a Syrian prison cell 15 years ago. He first saw her bloodied face after a beating when she was placed in a neighboring cell. Over months they communicated through a tiny hole they’d secretly made in the wall. They fell in love and when released got married and started a family together. Trailer/for more information:
