Synopsis

In the brutal lands of northern Syria, 10- year-old bird enthusiast Rami struggles to survive alongside his overly adventurous elder brother Ibrahim. Due to Ibrahim’s ambitions to make a quick profit and Rami’s hope for a better life, the brothers are lured into taking on a dicey job in rural Syria. Complications arise when they roam dangerous conflict-ridden terrain, which not only compromises the job at hand, but also the safety of the boys’ lives.
