歷史古城阿勒坡為敘利亞原為第一大城,百年之前亞美尼亞人因避難至此建立新家園。2011 年的阿勒坡內戰爆發,這座歷史古城變得滿目瘡痍,導演的家在阿勒坡舊城中心,那裡正是阿勒坡內戰的前線,夾雜在民生吵雜中,是子彈擊發的聲音。導演在家裡,透過小攝影機記載著家人與鄰居之間的生活,讓我們管窺了戰爭如影隨行的殘酷,以及當地人從渴望和平生活到漸漸麻痺的無奈。
導演身為亞美尼亞後裔,從阿勒坡內戰的種族滅絕行動與敘利亞當今情勢的情況,回望百年之前先輩受到的同等待遇,紀錄片也提供了在各國新聞報導之外,更真實的呈現。

100 years ago the Armenian genocide survivors took shelter and started a new life in the historical city Aleppo, Syria. This is also the director's hometown to which he returned from Damascus when the Syrian uprising began in 2011. Shot with a small camera from the balcony of his home, the film records the gradual changes in his neighborhood and the life of his own family, suggesting an uncanny parallel between the Armenian genocide in the past and Syrians’ reality today, and thus questioning the idea of justice.
