Six Ordinary Stories

The film

Six taxi drivers open up in the intimacy of their cars, and take us into their daily stories, wandering in the streets of Damascus. They areephemeral heroes, airing their hardships and visions of life. These six ordinary stories told in a seeming light tone, hold all the sarcasm and truth of people living without well knowing what tomorrow may bring.
