A teacher, a farmer, and a professional soldier all became revolutionary fighters in the Free Syrian Army. When they were badly injured, they were flown to Germany for treatment at a hospital in Berlin. All three fighters now have to face the decision about whether to return to Syria when they are fully recovered.
Al Abboud, a teacher, whose entire family has joined the Free Syrian Army (FSA), finds comfort in drawing after his eldest son was killed in a battle, but still he seems determined to re-join the FSA once on his feet again.
Mahmoud Lakud, a former soldier, who defected from the Syrian army and joined the FSA, decides to stay in Germany after recovering from his injuries and applies for asylum.
Mahmoud Naqawa, a farmer, left Germany for a refugee camp in Jordan to take care of his two younger brothers, the only survivors of their family not killed by government bombing.
While he was in the hospital, his fiancée waited for him in Jordan, and when he got back, they married in the camp. He would gladly return to Syria to fight again if his injured arm would allow him.
