Suleiman (Bachar Assi), a 12-year old boy who lives with his poor family near Damascus along with many other families displaced from the Golan Heights, decides to sell tissues to help his father fulfil his dream of owning his very own Suzuki pick-up truck. The boy's chance meeting with a local girl whose father has been imprisoned for drawing satirical sketches leads Suleiman's family to make an important decision about their future.
