SYNOPSIS
How can one become a free and responsible person when he's been educated to remain a little soldier of the Assad's Regime ? How can one find a way towards life, getting rid of the fear deeply rooted in every syrian child since his first days on earth ? Sharing his memories with his friends and with opponents of the dictatorship, the syrian painter and filmmaker Hazem Alhamwi tries to understand how, since their childhood, the syrians have learned to live with distress and anxiety. Meanwhile, Hazem Alhamwi understands how important his obsession of drawing has always helped him to stick to life and to keep his human dignity in such a hard country.
