This archaeological excavation in northern Turkey is a peaceful place for two Syrian refugees. After an odyssey through the war zone and bribing some soldiers at the Turkish border, they managed to reach the village close to the excavation. With the small income from their work here, they try to find a way to get their families out of the war. From time to time one of them can talk to his mother in Syria by mobile phone. But the last talk contained barbarous news. Nearly all family members had been slaughtered by IS, and peace lost its meaning.
