Wound presents a personal yet politically relevant testimony of an intensive care nurse working in Damascus at the beginning of the uprising. Working with a group of medics alongside activists, she makes her way into fighting zones to stealthily help the wounded. Her taxing daily experience merges psychological trauma, physical danger and political determination towards a people's Syria. Despite the fears and horrors she faces on a daily basis, in this short film director Wael Kadlo relays her emotional resolve and her unyielding strength to use her skill to help her countrymen.
