A Syrian refugee reminisces as he responds to images of his country projected on a wall.

As he responds to images of Syria projected on a wall, a Syrian refugee reminisces about his life back home, speaking about the people, place and culture with bittersweet and palpable nostalgia. We travel with him to different parts of the country, as he talks about his initial reluctance to leave, as well as challenging popular stereotypes.
