After Spring

View on the Pragda STREAM site

Syrian brothers Adel and Hadi Bakkour take to the streets of Rio de Janeiro to fight for democracy in the country where they found refuge. History repeats itself: in 2013 they were forced to leave Aleppo, Syria, after fighting against the repressive Baathist regime. Behind they left their mother, Lawahez, and their father, Abdo. The family is reunited six years after the separation, in a Brazil in transformation.

Divided between a country at war and a democracy that is more than fragile, the film takes us along the paths of exile and the struggles for a more just world.
