Ayouni (My Eyes, My Love) weaves together the stories of the ancient ‘Eye Idols’ from Syria – large eyed mysterious historical artefacts – with high profile figures of the Syrian revolution – Father Paolo, Bassel Khartabil & Noura Ghazi – ‘The Bride & Groom of the Revolution’.

In the void left behind by disappearance, Paolo’s sister Machi searches for the truth of what happened to her brother. Noura, Bassel’s wife and human rights lawyer, fights for the rights of prisoners and the detainees. Meanwhile, the eye idols stand as a reminder that the past cannot remain buried for ever.
