Zakiyeh (14) and Shifaa (10) grew up in Syria with their extended family before the war shook up their life. The girls stopped attending school, fear of violence escalated and eventually their mother Hawaa decided to flee to Turkey.
Hawaa is an experienced seamstress and found work in a sewing shop in Istanbul. She would like to put her children back in school, but as a single displaced mother with a limited income, she has not been able to. Instead of going to school, the girls help their mother at work to earn extra money.
