However, the horrors of war catches up with him, when the civil war erupts. His friend is murdered in cold-blood, he gets separated from Yasmine, when her family moves away to escape the war and his father gets kidnapped by the militia. Despite his opposition to violence and warfare, Rami finds himself signing up to be a militia fighter for a different faction, in a bid to find his father. He meets Siham, a young mother whose husband had been kidnapped. In spite of the obstacles in her way, she is determined to find her husband.
