“It is a small portrait of Doctor Qasim AL-Zein, who took the responsibility for the last two years to treat the people in the city's field hospital.”


In the midst of all that happens, far from the mass media's fuss and its focus on spectacular incidents, hundreds of people work in silence, risking their lives to rescue the lives of others, and thus rejecting the ugliness of death by the desire to live.
In the city of Al-Qusair in rural Homs, several months before it falls back into the hand of the Syrian regime, Amal Saloum has recorded with her lens a portrait about one of these unknown soldiers. 
It is a small portrait of Doctor Qasim AL-Zein, who took the responsibility for the last two years to treat the people in the city's field hospital, before he also had to leave in June 2013, but not without arranging for the wounded to be saved also. 
Today after the destruction of the field hospital, Doctor Qasim was obliged to depart to the Syrian-Lebanese borders: Yet, he is still besides his patients.
