Step into the kitchen. Our host is preparing kubah, a traditional Syrian dish. While she cooks, she tells us the story of meeting Ashraf, a Syrian exile, and falling in love with him as he desperately tries to help those he left behind to escape the war. When he vanishes, she impulsively trails him to the homeland she has never known, now consumed by war. She returns with the stories of the people she encountered along the way, to share what she has witnessed of both the brutality, and the grace, of humanity.
