During the course of the Syrian conflict, more than 100,000 people have disappeared or have been illegally detained. The families they leave behind may move on to safer places as refugees, but the search for what happened to their loved ones persists wherever they go. Tomorrow We Continue is an animated short film that follows the story of a young mother of two whose husband was detained and disappeared by security forces in Syria some years ago. The film takes us on her journey as a refugee searching for safety in Berlin and, once settled, the daily struggles she encounters as she tries to find balance earning a living and caring for her children with continuing to search for her husband. The film is based on real interviews with families of the missing, collected by a group of Syrian organizations working on the ground. The film aims to shed light on the limbo in which many Syrian families live, as they struggle to learn the fate of their loved ones. They are stuck between moving on and holding on to hope.
