Anat Ismael works as an interpreter at the Canadian Embassy in Damascus where she translates for asylum seekers. She is pregnant, and as her body changes, she reflects on her life as she waits for her husband, a political prisoner, to be released. The stories she hears from the asylum seekers, victims of repression from throughout the Arab world, are linked to hers and those of her friends.
