DOC 1 Between War and Peace

Civil war in Syria and country life in Ireland form the two poles between which the programme Between War and Peace oscillates. Here, the protagonists dream of a better, more beautiful life, fighting with a camera or leaving their homeland. But sometimes, simply acquiring a roof above one's heads is pure salvation.
