From 2011 to 2013, director Talal Derki accompanied two friends in Homs who were organising demonstrations against the regime of president Bashar al-Assad. After the military response to the demonstrations by Syrian security services, the two friends decided to join the resistance. Thus the goalkeeper for a youth football team became the commander of a small group of fighters on the side of the Free Syrian Army.
