While living in a Beirut refugee camp, four Syrian women plunge into Sophocles’ legendary play, Antigone. This documentary is a colourful and moving account of the women’s journey: with courage, integrity and inspiration, they reflect on the course of their lives and rediscover forgotten joys. This finely wrought film, intertwined with dreamlike and poetic animations, highlights the bravery of four women in the face of displacement.
