Behind the Sun

Message Heard

In Behind the Sun, Nadia, a young Syrian woman in the diaspora, struggles to come to terms with what the world knows about what’s happening in her country. She speaks with Riyad - her father's friend - whom she had first met in the strangest of circumstances. Riyad tells Nadia more about his extraordinary story and what happens to those who, like him, have disappeared 'behind the sun' in Syria.   Behind the Sun is a narrative journey, as we follow the path of an enduring friendship forged in the darkest of circumstances—a story of two men who survived against the odds and are fighting for all those left behind. We follow Riyad and Diab through their experience in one of Syria's most notorious detention camps — Sednaya.    In this six-part series, we also hear from others who are still living the ongoing horrors that more than 100,000 detainees in Syria and their families continue to face. Behind the Sun is co-produced by Message Heard and The Syria Campaign, in collaboration with the Association of Detainees and the Missing (ADMSP) and the Syrian Center for Justice and Accountability (SJAC) under its project On the Margins No More.
