In the wake of Germany’s devastating floods in the summer of 2021, three Syrian refugees went to the village of Sinzig to help victims. They called on other refugees to join their efforts, and the group played a critical role in the rebuilding effort. Anas, Faris, and Abdul are now calling the Ahr region their new home, and the German residents have welcomed them with open arms. The three refugees are the subject of a new documentary that documents their incredible story of selflessness and perseverance.
The documentary provides a window into the lives of Anas, Faris, and Abdul before their humanitarian efforts made global headlines. They had seen destruction in their homeland and were now living in Germany as refugees. The film captures their struggles and motivation as they help rebuild the lives of others while finding their own sense of community and belonging. Through the eyes of the refugees and the German residents, the documentary explores themes of hope, resilience, and the power of human connection.
