According to the director Yaman ʿAntabli, this videoclip is a message to the Arab and international community about the suffering of those Syrians who had to flee their country via illegal means and it seeks to highlight the reasons that made them leave in the first place. Antabli is aware that such art works cannot save those who have already drowned while traveling, but he believes they could “save the rest.”
