Image from the film The Return to Homs
The Return to Homs is about Abdul Basset al-Saroot, a 19-year-old soccer star and Syrian citizen who uses his character and charisma as a revolutionary leader after peaceful protests in Syria evolve into a siege in Homs. As battles spread throughout the country, Saroot speaks out against the Syrian regime. Snipers shoot citizens and the regime shells innocent civilians, and Saroot starts carrying weapons. Saroot and the filmmakers witness mounting injustices and experience the pressures of the battlefield. In Arabic language with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)
