The library's free foreign film series presents an award-winning drama by writer/director Philippe Van Leeuw, screening at the Chief Theater.


A nerve-wracking study of life in Damascus: Trapped inside her house in a city under siege, Oum Yazan, mother of three, turned her flat into a safe harbor for her family and neighbors, trying to protect them from the war outside. When bombs threaten to destroy the building, when snipers turn the courtyards into deadly zones, and burglars break in to claim their dreadful bounties, maintaining the thin balance of routine inside the walls becomes a matter of life and death.
