Águilas sobre Damasco


Ghada, an 8-year-old girl, lives in a country at war. One night, her father urges her to get up because they have to flee the city before the bombing. Ghada does not want to leave her home or her friends. On the run, Ghada and her family have to avoid many difficulties and dangers. It is a long, exhausting trail for a young child and her family. Fortunately, along the way they meet an old Sahraoui Professor, a poet, who can hardly endure the long walk, but will help the children by telling them stories. He will be the one who tells them an ancient legend about the young Anbar, who was turned into an eagle and lived in the highest tower of Damascus.
