Damascus, Syria. The civil war has raged since 2011 and killed around 250.000 people. Roshak Ahmad is a Kurdish student. In 2013, she films during 12 days urban combats. In the Al Hajar Al Aswad district, she accompanies the unit of Abu Omar's rebel fighters. They have barricaded themselves in a house. Assad’s snipers have taken up position just 150 metres across the road. There are no civilians left, only the skeletal remains of houses. We witness a house-to-house battle.
