“A feel-good doc that’s clear-eyed and grounded in tough realities.” — The Hollywood Reporter
Soufra follows the inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar – a refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burj El Barajneh refugee camp south of Beirut, Lebanon.
This film follows Mariam and a diverse team of fellow refugee women as they set out to change their fate by launching a catering company and then expanding its reach outside the camp with a food truck business. Together, they heal through the unifying power of food, while taking their future into their own hands.
