RETURN TO HOMS

0.00

From 2011 to 2013, filmmaker Talal Derki follows the journey of two close friends whose lives had been upended by the battle raging in Syria.

19-year-old Basset is a local soccer star, the goalkeeper for the Syrian national team. He's also become an iconic singer in the revolution. His songs reflect his dreams for a peaceful liberation from Assad’s brutal regime.

Ossama is a 24-year-old media activist and pacifist who wields his camera to capture the revolution.

When the army cracks down, and their beloved city of Homs starts resembling a bombed-out ghost town, these two peaceful protesters finally take up arms and transform into rebel insurgents. (Sundance)

Director: Talal Derki
