Over a period of two years, Alexis Cordesse went to meet with Syrians refugees in France, Germany and Turquey. Throughout his meetings, he has collected personal photographs, written the stories of these images and those who entrusted them to him. Rejecting all kind of spectacular, this film evokes with modesty and empathy the Syrian tragedy, at the crossroads of intimacy and History.
