Surrounded by ruins in Damascus, Syria, Ayham Ahmad sings about migration, hunger, and death while accompanied by an out-of-tune piano. Threatened by Assad’s regime and ISIS, he is silenced and must flee. The film “The Pianist of Yarmouk” tells the story of this Syrian refugee. We follow the life of a man who sang out against the suffering in his country until his piano was destroyed. His fate stands for that of thousands – robbed of their hopes and dreams and forced to build a new existence.
