The Day I Lost my Shadow

Syria 2011, between water outages and power cuts, all Sana dreams about is a hot shower. She is not interested in politics. She has a nine years old kid that she needs to take care of, and an absent husband working in Saudi Arabia to support the family. Now she can’t even cook since the country is hit by a Gas crisis. So she takes a day off and goes out searching for a place to buy a gas cylinder. The road to the distributor is still very far away and she has to pass by people who lost their shadows, by graves in gardens, and burned olive trees.
