SOUFRA follows the inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur Mariam Shaar – a refugee who has spent her entire life in the 69-year-old Burl El Barajneh refugee camp, south of Beirut, Lebanon.

The film chronicles Mariam, and a diverse team of fellow refugee women from throughout the Middle East, who share the camp as their home as they set out to change their fate by launching a catering company – “Soufra” – and then expand its reach outside the camp (through an astonishing Kickstarter campaign) with a first-ever food truck business. Together, these determined, hardworking women heal the wounds of war through the unifying power of food, while taking their future into their own hands.
