After years under siege, the Syrian city of Aleppo has turned into a ghost town. It is the backdrop for a dramatic story of a filmmaker capturing the course of a never-ending conflict as a testimony for her new-born daughter Sama.

For five years, during which the people of Aleppo dreamed of a free life while being subjected to daily bombing, local journalist and filmmaker Waad al-Khateab filmed the situation, from the protests in 2011 to the outbreak of the worst civil war of our time. With camera always in hand, she married a doctor and give birth to a daughter, to whom the film is dedicated, as a diary that can answer the burning question of why she had to experience the first years of her life amid the everyday horror of war and omnipresent death.
