Taste Of Cement

Enjaaz


In Beirut, Syrian construction workers are building a skyscraper as their own houses in their homeland are being shelled. The workers are locked in the building site and are not allowed to leave it after sunset as the Lebanese government has imposed nighttime curfews on the refugees. Cut off from their homeland, they gather at night around a small TV set for news about Syria. Tormented by anguish and anxiety, while suffering the deprivation of the most basic human and workers right, they keep hoping for a different life.
