When you leave your home and you know that you will not be able to go back, so you go forward and move from success to another.


Obaida is a bright student who miraculously arrives in Rome thanks to a scholarship. He used to dream of becoming a singer but the war changed his priorities. Obaida is on his own, his family remained in Syria. When everything is lost, starting over seems impossible. But life never ceases to surprise Obaida: he will graduate with honors and his path will cross other lives and stories. With his extraordinary story and his courageous example, Obaida offers the spectator a different perspective on Syria in its war years, allowing us to know the Syrian culture regardless of the tragic state it is currently in.
