    A war between government and ISIS-affiliated jihadists forced hundreds of thousands to flee from Marawi, Philippines. Displaced couple Yusop and Farhanna and their children yearn for freedom, income, and comfort after returning to their city. But even to return to normalcy is already a struggle. Nancy, a once wealthy woman, has to cope with her loss of home in an evacuation shelter where she will have to remain for years. A driver with striking insights shuttles back and forth between places and stories around a deformed city. The film follows the protagonists for two years through fear, worry, and hope, towards a new beginning on their long journey.
