Freedom, dictatorship, religion, and gender equality are all questioned and compromised as the lives of Dalia, Suso, Ruby, and Lynne are caught up in the uprising of Damascus in 2011. The young women see their lives transform in front of them as the revolution gains momentum, and slowly discover who they truly are through their difficulties, differences, and political ambitions.
