A life of hardships and salty dreams of twenty families, internally displaced from three Syrian cities: Aleppo, Damascus and Homs, because of the ongoing conflict, to take shelter in a tunnel under construction on the coastal front's Cornish in the city of Tartus. The families become inhabitants of the tunnel! The tunnel is a true metaphor for Syria, which is also going through a dark tunnel, out of which we do not know when we will get out.
