Being Good so Far (Part 2)

Two years passed since the filmmaker’s first visit to Aleppo. When he came back, several areas had been liberated and he was astonished to find that Al-Sha’ar market was still full of life’s colours, despite the barbaric attacks that turned Aleppo into a semi-ghost city. So he decides to make a film about this market to present a different side of the city far from what is promoted in the media.
