The civil war in Syria forced thousands of refugees to flee for safety. Nearby towns became flooded with those seeking shelter from war. One refugee, Abu Raja, lost his entire family. While he wants to seek revenge for his loss and suffering, he is unable to seek revenge on humans. Instead, he “kills the rock” to unleash "the creation within it." Abu Raja uses rocks to create sculptures to show what is going on in Syria. He wants his work to revive the spirits of the Syrian people so they do not look into the future through the lens of fear and depression.
