Comrades and lovers Amer and Raghda met in a Syrian prison cell 15 years ago. When director Sean McAllister first meets their family in 2009, Raghda is back in prison leaving Amer to look after their four boys; but as the Arab Spring sweeps the region, the family’s fate shifts irrevocably.
Filmed over 5 years, award-winning ‘A Syrian Love Story’ chronicles Ragda and Amer’s incredible odyssey of hope, dreams and despair: for the revolution, their homeland and each other.
