Valley of Exile
FEATURE FILM CALLING CARD Two sisters, whose parents were killed in Syria, escape to a refugee camp in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley after fleeing war-torn Damascus. Older sister Rima, who is seven months pregnant, is set on reuniting with her husband and rebuilding their lives in Lebanon while younger sister Nour is determined to find their missing brother and eventually return home to Syria. In the camp, the sisters forge alliances with other women which propel them onto separate paths: Rima works odd jobs so that she can rent an apartment before her baby is born while Nour sets out to investigate their brother’s whereabouts, risking her own safety in the process. As days in the camp turn to weeks, Rima and Nour begin to realize that their journey together into exile is not only a struggle for survival but ultimately a test of loyalty to their country, their family and each other.
