About this submission

As the shelling intensifies, Nadim (an aspiring actor) is among the neighbors that rush down to the shelter room. Leyla, a young Syrian girl, softly weeps over her torn teddy bear. Moved by the scenery, Nadim decides to put his passion into practice and take matters into his own hands... literally! He places the upper part of the teddy bear into his hand and assumes the role of a puppeteer. In the midst of despair and chaos, Leyla and the occupants are met with magic... the teddy bear comes to life.
