Amal arrives in Marseille by boat, escorted by different barges and welcomed by the Mucem (Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations). There, Amal meets the Syrian filmmaker and visual artist Ammar al-Beik.

As a child, Ammar spent his days in his uncle’s sewing workshop in Damascus before leaving in exile. Now based in Marseille, he offers a cape to Little Amal “This is your source of warmth. Your shield. This is what keeps you whole”.

She is then invited to a big meal with traditional mezze dishes designed by the artist Mélanie Bourlon, with music by Rohan Houssein, directed by Grégoire Ingold, with the children of the Maison pour tous Saint Mauront and the association La Caravelle.
