Eight former Lebanese detainees recall the years they spent in Syria’s notorious Tadmor Prison. There, the systematic torture has just one goal: the physical and psychological destruction of the detainees. In Tadmor, the men tell a story of shared suffering. Yet each man has a unique perspective and a particular set of experiences; only he knows the secret to his own survival. In Tadmor, the men reenact their narratives physically, as words cannot fully describe the torture, pain, fear and humiliation they experienced. Tadmor tackles the issue of human capacities in the face of barbarism, resistance and termination. The film is an ode to the human ability to survive. A story of hope and survival.
