Aeham rose to international prominence in 2014, after being filmed singing songs of peace amid the rubble of his beloved hometown of Yarmouk – a besieged Palestinian refugee camp on the outskirts of Damascus, Syria.

Surrounded by war, starvation, and displacement, he sought to bring hope to the children of Yarmouk and spread a message of friendship to the outside world. When invading fighters threatened his life, Aeham was forced to flee with his wife and children, embarking on a perilous voyage across land and sea.

This 13-minute debut documentary film by producer/director Vikram Ahluwalia combines animation, original music, and interview, with performance and archive footage, to share Aeham’s remarkable journey.
