EN - A short film which highlights the difficulties of communication between people from two different cultures and with different life experiences. What starts out as a simple conversation about wine turns out to be a fundamental breaking point in a relationship. The love between a Syrian girl and a European guy isn’t strong enough to transcend the gulf between them and escalates into a romantic and philosophical drama.
