Wajd is the story of three Syrian musicians, forced to exile, who turn to their love of music to overcome the traumatic experience of war. With bittersweet musical performances, traditional Sufi ceremonies, and poetic imagery of a pre-war Syria that no longer exists, the film unfolds a cinematic meditation on loss, yearning, and faith.
