The film follows physician Dr. Hamza al-Khatib and nurse Um Ibrahim in al-Quds Hospital, by then the last operational one in besieged East Aleppo, through the lenses of photographer Abd Alkader Habak. Amidst the misery and death, they, with other main characters managed to find moments of love, fun and laughter. With them we live the time of despair but also that of hope. Until the moment comes where they were all forced to leave with no return, for now at least.
