9-year-old Marwa is an inquisitive child, whose interests revolve around, playtime, school and her siblings. She and her family live in Jordan’s Za’atari camp, the world’s largest camp for Syrian refugees, and hope to return home soon. As the weeks turn into years, Tiny Souls captures the resilience and hopefulness of children displaced by conflict, while raising crucial questions as to what lies in store for their whole generation.
