    In the Syrian city of Aleppo, battered by air strikes, actors invite people to a secret underground hiding place to put on their latest work.

    It is a play about the dreams of a nation hoping for a brighter future. But it ends up being a portrayal of helpless Syrians left on their own facing death at home or uncertainty in exile.
