"...a Syrian political prisoner of conscience, an atheist mistaken for a radical Islamist - the worst kind of enemy of the state - who was locked up for 14 years without a trial. Shunned by his fellow inmates, Musa remains silent and mostly unspoken-to for the duration of his incarceration. A young film school graduate at the start, he is a defiant and stoic narrator, somehow able to pick out humor and irony in the shocking events and the characters he describes. Yet even the strongest personality cannot hold out under such brutal conditions forever..." - back cover.
