Private Project


telling us a story about two refugees ( brother and sister ) from Syria who run away from the war in their country. Belgium as their destination offers a shelter and means a new route to a new life and new beginning after they have lost their family , loved ones and everything they had. The story spots the light on how each one of them moved their life forward after moving to Belgium. It shows us how they try to integrate in a new system, with new people and new rules. How the changes they going true undoubtedly brings difficulties in their life , and how hard it is for them to start over living in Europe and forget about their home and the drama they had experienced in Syria.
