We Are Not Princesses
The Syrian refugee crisis is on the world stage. But We Are Not Princesses shows a personal side of the crisis most have never seen, following the daily lives of four remarkable women, whose extraordinary struggles and strength tell a different kind of story, about obedience and defiance, resilience and reconciliation.
Follow along as the women navigate new lives and small freedoms in exile, adapting to new roles: in their families and in a theater production of the Greek play, Antigone. Glimpse into life under siege, as these mothers, sisters, and wives grapple with past trauma and express themselves openly, often for the first-time, on camera.
