          that was created by the war in this old city. at that moment, those participants believed that they will never gather in one
          place. So, «peace lens» arrived to take part in addressing this problem.

           e idea of the film was to dig in for what brings them and the rest of Homsi people together, and there it was… Khamis
          Al-Halawah.

          An occasion that was celebrated only by the people of Homs who used to celebrate this occasion annually until the
          beginning of the war 2011. During the research about Khamis Al-Halawah the participants found Rwaida, the heroine
          of their achieved film who despite her simplicity was able to bring them together and turned the entire track of the film.
