Mother Agnes faces the effect of the Syrian war in her monastery on the border with Lebanon, where ISIS hides. Although the monastery itself is a target for attacks, the monastery welcomes orphans, widows, refugees (both Christians and Sunni). An exploration not of war, but of the human condition in times of war.
