The protagonist of “Salam“, today’s short video, is a young Syrian girl who lives in New York, where she works as a driver. Her life is marked by one race and the other, but also by a call and the other. Every time her phone rings, there are two possibilities: to hear good news from her relatives living in Syria or to learn of another attack and wait to know if everyone is well.

The wait is nerve-wracking and while his life goes on his thoughts are distant, detached. The protagonist is the daily life of many people who find themselves forced to rebuild everything in another country, without forgetting their origins.
