Nearly 10 years after the beginning of the Syrian revolution, three Syrian activists reunite on a theatre stage in Paris. Through life-size projections, Syrian director Rami Farah confronts them with footage, some of it their own. Watching the brutal footage together, they reflect on their personal journeys and revive their collective memory, thereby creating a unique window into the complexity of the situation in Syria, where a peaceful uprising was replaced by a ferocious war.
