Amer and Raghda met in a Syrian prison where both were locked up for speaking out against the regime. After leaving prison they married. 20 years and four sons later, Raghda is once more jailed as a political prisoner. When she is unexpectedly released, the Syrian Revolution is in full swing. Amer and Raghda must flee overnight to Lebanon, with nothing but their children. Filmed over 5 years, Sean McAllister charts their incredible odyssey to freedom. His dynamic style of filmmaking provides a powerful insight into what it means to be on the run.

Amer dan Raghda bertemu di penjara Suriah di mana mereka ditahan akibat menentang rezim. Setelah keluar dari bui, mereka menikah. 20 tahun kemudian, Raghda sekali lagi dipenjara sebagai tahanan politik. Ketika ia tiba-tiba dibebaskan, Revolusi Suriah tengah berlangsung. Amer dan Raghda melarikan diri ke Lebanon dengan keempat anaknya. Dengan produksi film yang memakan waktu lebih dari 5 tahun, Sean McAllister berhasil menggambarkan petualangan mereka menuju kebebasan. Gaya dinamis filmnya memberikan gambaran tentang apa artinya menjadi pelarian.
