Synopsis

Little Marwa lives in a refugee camp since she fled Syria with her family. Dina Naser’s attentive eye follows the daily life of Marwa, a lively and open spirit who does not understand walls or bars. Going from childhood to adulthood will lead to new challenges to survive in an environment where, in spite of everything, life goes on.

Marwa has adapted to life in the country, has friends to play with, and goes to school. But when her older brother is interrogated by the authorities about his association with extremist militants, she is confronted with a new reality: her “settled” life takes a huge turn that will make her question certain truths. For four years, the charm, positivism and determination of the protagonist captivated the filmmaker, who saw in her an inspiring testimony of resistance, survival and hope. The harsh conditions in the countryside have never bent Marwa’s will to build her own path.

Reviews

The standout feature of Tiny Souls is the authenticity and frankness in the assessments that Marwa and her siblings make of their own lives.

— Cineuropa

Tiny Souls doesn't shy away from harsh reality, but is distinguished by the way it draws out the signs of optimism and normality that endure against all the odds.
