  Baha’a is ready to leave the war-torn city of Aleppo to return to his home town. He and his fellow travelers are forced to stop their journey because of clashes ahead.

Strangers with different extravagant characters will be stuck together somewhere in “no man’s land”, where they are forced to alter their trip because of conflicts ahead. They were promised that their waiting time would be couple of days, so, they take refuge in deserted homes.
The waiting time was extended, days, weeks, and months even, how would these bunches of travelers cope?
