Adrenaline

Buy Tickets

What is more difficult, to stay in danger with your loved ones or to live alone in safety? Adrenaline follows one man for one night, getting ready to celebrate his first New Years Eve in Canada after leaving his war-torn home in Syria. Using objects he has around the house, he unpacks memories of war, and tries to understand the price he has had to pay for his safety in Canada.

أدرينالين تروي حكاية جابر الشاب السوري الذي اضطرته ظروف الحرب في سوريا للّجوء إلى كندا. جابر يحاول الاحتفال بأول ليلة رأس السنة له في كندا بعيداً عن عائلته. كيف يحتفل جابر في الوقت الذي أهله وأقاربه ما زالوا في سوريا؟ ما هو الثمن الذي دفعه جابر مقابل الأمان الذي قدمه له وطنه الجديد كندا؟

Adrenaline is performed in Arabic with English subtitles.
