Summary
In the once beautiful city of Aleppo, one Syrian family descends into tragedy and ruin between the 1960s and 2000s. Irrepressible Sawsan flirts with militias, the ruling party, and finally religion, seeking but never finding salvation. She and her siblings and mother are slowly choked in violence and decay, as their lives are plundered by a brutal regime
