The district of Yarmouk (Damascus, Syria) sheltered the biggest Palestinian refugee camp in the world from 1957 to 2018.  

The film director, Abdallah Al-Khatib, was born in Yarmouk and lived there until 2015. Between 2011 and 2015, he and his friends documented the daily life of the besieged inhabitants, who decided to face bombing, displacement and hunger with rallying, study, music, love and joy.

The film has received numerous awards including the the Black Iris Award for Best Arab Feature-length Documentary at Amman International Film Festival – Awal Film in its third edition, the Interreligious Award at Visions du Réel,  Audience Award at Filmfest Hamburg, Best Film at the Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival 2021, Impact Audience Award at Vancouver International Film Festival, Press Jury Award at War on Screen Film Festival, Best Film at Documentary Competition at IFFI – International Film Festival Innsbruck, Honorable Jury Mention at Mostra – São Paulo IFF, Prix TV 5 Monde at Carthage Film Festival, Palestinian Sunbird Award for Best Documentary at Palestine Cinema Days, Bader Best Feature Film Award at Ajyal Film Festival.
