Adam is a 14-year-old boy with Asperger syndrome trying to understand the Syrian conflict and its effect on his life, so he paints his feelings. Yasmine, his beautiful older sister devotes herself to him, sacrificing her true happiness as she tries to protect the ones she loves. She has to cope with her own traumas when she is taken by soldiers. Their three brothers, too, struggle - on whether or not to take sides, and the consequences of their choices.
