“No Way Back” follows three Syrian refugees living in Istanbul and shows their struggles, their joys and their dreams.
The start of the Arab appraisals in March 2011 changed everything for Syrians: instead of reforms and hope it brought along a never-ending devastating war that has caused the biggest humanitarian catastrophe in the human history. Approximately 6 million people have fled from Syria, around 6 million are displaced inside Syria.
Turkey has received around 3 million of the displaced and around 500 000 of them have found a home in Istanbul. “No Way Back” tells the story of 3 people who escaped Aleppo.
Meet Marwa, Fuad and Hani, all of who have lived in Istanbul for almost 6 years. “No Way Back” shows what it takes to start a life from the scratch, how to manage mentally and economically, what are the opportunities and dreams.
“No Way Back” was produced by Estonian TV ETV, November 2017.
