When his grandparents and father were forced to flee Israel and seek refuge from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict ravaging their home, Ahmad's family built a life in Yarmouk, an unofficial camp to more than 160,000 Palestinian refugees in Damascus. Their only haven was in music and in each other. This is Ahmad's story of one man's search for a peaceful life for his family and of a country being torn apart as the world watches in horror.
