Synopsis

Hassan and Jourieh and their daughters Reem, Asayel and Nour live in a tent in an informal settlement in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley.

Now they live their lives out not knowing what the future brings and with no clear way forward or back the family describe their existence in limbo. Narrated by UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador: Jung Woo-sung who met the family during a visit to Lebanon.
