They call it a civil war
but there is nothing civil about it
nothing civil at all
They came from Damascus, from Aleppo, from Banias where the bombs fall day and night and the wounded children look like sleeping angels. Now they live in camps and abandoned buildings in Lebanon and Jordan, as Syria's becomes a haunting memory.
A Syrian woman prepares kibbeh in her kitchen, while recounting tales of her vanished lover. Her stories bring to life an ancient land torn apart by a cruel war. Oh My Sweet Land is written by Amir Nizar Zuabi, rising star of the Palestinian theatre.
