  • Produced by Adalios & Taswir Films
  • National release: March 18, 2015


Yarmouk's "chebabs" are above all a bunch of friends who have known each other since adolescence ... In the largest Palestinian refugee camp in the Middle East, created in Syria in 1957, they share their daily lives, look for a future. Third generation of exiles, they no longer dream of returning to Palestine. But their thirst for life, their desire for revolt clash with the walls of the camp. At the threshold of existential choices, history catches up with them again. The revolution in Syria bursted in March 2011. The camp will largely be destroyed, and their lives, disrupted. The film, which was shot just before, crystallizes their last moments together at Yarmouk.
