Ballad for Syria

A ballad, narrates poetic stories in short stanzas, hence this musical documentary opens a glimpse into the life of Maiza Alhafez - a musician and a Syrian refugee in Istanbul. The film is about her longing to her loved ones as she tries to make a place for herself in the world of the displaced. Her family still in Syria, Maisa's true love (fiancé) is in the Netherlands. As of the current EU-Turkey border regime, to unite is very challenging. Not giving up, Maisa works hard for her vision: to build a community that sings together as she believes through music and love one can heal the wounds of her people and children.
