IN SYRIA revolves around a mother of three who is trapped inside her our house in a city under siege. She turns her flat into a safe harbor for her family and neighbors, trying to protect them from the war outside. When bombs threaten to destroy the building and when snipers turn the courtyards into deadly zones and burglars break in to claim their bounties, maintaining the thin balance of routine inside the walls becomes a matter of life and death.
