Syrian-Canadian filmmaker Amar Chebib began making videos in his youth while growing up between the Middle East and North America. Wajd is his first feature length documentary.  Over five years, we witness the struggles of Ibrahim, Abdulwahed, and Mohamed as they face their traumatic past. Forced to rebuild their lives in exile, they turn to their love of music to help them find meaning in the aftermath of destruction and atrocity.
