Since all of her seven sons and daughters left Syria seeking refuge worldwide, 80-year-old Susu found herself with no choice but to leave Damascus and move to Dubai to live with her daughter’s family. However, she remains in constant conflict with her children, as she struggles despite her failing health to convince them of returning her to her now-empty, lifelong home in Damascus. Will Susu have a chance to see her lifelong home again?
