Bushra, a Syrian teenager living as a refugee in Jordan, created this quiet tribute to the restorative power of the outdoors during a six-week film workshop. Featuring first-person narration and no score, Bushra tells the story of her brother’s death  and remembers their childhood together with tenderness. She longs, symbolically, to be surrounded by the color green.
