This film is a contemporary portrait of 83 year old Riyad Al-Turk, a Syrian leftist opposition leader known as Syria’s Mandela. The film director is based in Beirut and is unable to return to Syria where Riyad lives in hiding between the two cities of Damascus and Homs. Information technology and social media become crucial communication tools in the Syrian revolution – particularly Skype. In addition to the two film crews working on this project , one in Beirut and one in Damascus, the Skype lens-and-screen is a third element essential to the  visual construction of the film.
