FRIDAY 17/10 – 20h00
UGC Turnhout


While outside bombs go off and snipers are on alert, a family hides day and night in their apartment in Damascus. Oum Yazan, the mother of three children, tries desperately to keep her family alive. She waits nervously for her husband to come home, will he come? Is it her husband who knocks on the door, or is it an outsider, a threat or attack? The family lives in constant anxiety, fear and danger. Philippe Van Leeuw shows how an extreme situation leads to extreme emotions and behaviour. Each decision can be vital for their survival.
