A Melody of Tears

One Day, her biggest question is whether Waleed still loves her. The next day, her biggest question is whether he’s alive or dead. One day, his biggest problem is that Sireen lied to him. The next day, his biggest problem is that she is trapped in a killing field.

A Melody of Tears: Sorrows of Syria is a tale of love and genocide as seen through the eyes of a young couple pushed to the forefront of a battle against the bloody regime in Syria. It takes you on a journey of pain and endurance, based on the real stories of some Syrians who survived, some who did not, and many whose destines are yet to be determined.
