In his early 20s, Addai goes to help in the Syrian civil war. First he works with Ilias in a kitchen, from where he writes his mother, “Don’t worry, I’m doing fine.” But soon afterwards, they lose contact. Two years later, she receives a letter from Ilias. He was convicted as a terrorist in Germany and would now like to meet her. He tells her, “We went with good intentions.”
