They came from Damascus, from Aleppo, from Banias—where bombs fall day and night and wounded children look like sleeping angels. Now they live in camps and abandoned buildings in Lebanon and Jordan, as Syria 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.
