Winner of the Lion of the Future Award at the last Mostra di Venezia, Soudade Kaadan is returning for the third time to the FIFF. Her first fiction feature film dives into the underlying premises of the Syrian tragedy in 2012, through the quest of a single mother named Sana. She has no more gas to cook and to heat her home. For three days, far from Damascus and her eight-year-old son, she searches for a precious propane tank.
