Antigone, the ancient Greek heroine, ignites the spirits of 4 Syrian women living as refugees in Beirut.

Feminine wisdom, passed through the ages, connects the inner lives of a group of women providing them with a sense of belonging. Through intimate verite footage, the film illustrates that which is invisible to the eye: The thoughts, memories and dreams of these mothers, sisters and wives as they grapple daily with past traumas and future uncertainty. It is, through the inspiration of drama from long ago and the creation of a social group, that Antigone, the ancient Greek heroine, ignites the spirits of these Syrian women living as refugees in Beirut.

Four women are highlighted in the film, but others wanted to tell their stories. Their families would not allow them. Creative production animation was used to permit the denied to participate without revealing their identities.
