The Film narrates the story of three women in three different cities. They have given up on life. One lives in Damascus. She has stopped speaking to others entirely, seeking refuge in silence since the death of her son in the war. The other has left Damascus as a result of the war there, hiding herself in a small village in northern Sweden, confining herself to a bed she never leaves. The third ended up in Vienna and faces an unknown future, like the ghost of a poet who left Austria during the Second World War.
The three women become part of different times and places, separated by war but having left the same city, Damascus, at the same time. One has lost her son, the other her brother, and the third her friend. The Film’s starting point is the question of the relationship between a woman and the city in which she lives, a woman who holds a city inside herself while living inside a city, meaning both belonging and identity. It is a discussion between a woman stuck in Damascus, a second stuck in exile, and a third who has recently left. It is a conversation between the interior and exterior. An impossible conversation.
