Original Title
Obscure tells the story of Ahmad, a Syrian child who doesn’t want to remember that he is Syrian. Half traumatized, half trying to escape his reality, Ahmad prefers to be silent and asleep. In his silence and refusal to talk, he takes us in a journey where individual and collective Syrian memories collapse.
