A MAN RETURNED
Reda is 26 years old. His dreams of escaping the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain El-Helweh ended in failure after three years trapped in Greece. He returned with a heroin addiction to life in a camp being torn apart by internal strife and the encroachment of war from Syria.
Against all odds he decides to marry his childhood sweetheart; a love story, bittersweet as the camp itself.
