The piece plays in Damascus of the past years. A family leaves home because of war to move to a less dangerous suburb of Damascus. During their move, they encounter difficulties of a material and idealistic nature. The father loses his job, so the mother becomes the sole provider of husband and son. She insists on paying off the credit for her home, despite constant bomb threats, hoping to return there soon. But the house is destroyed, and the father crosses the sea to flee to Europe. The aunt is run over by a taxi driver, leaving mother and son alone. Like most Syrians, the two are confronted with the question of how to start their lives from point Zero after enormous personal, material, and idealistic losses and their helplessness towards their individual and collective tragedy.
