Synopsis

In my city, you’ll find; a snake that doesn't harm the household, a plate of food that can feed thirty people, welcoming doors that are open throughout the day and night, rivers that flow through the house, a large Damascene house that was erased by a street, and an old grandfather obsessed with the laws of requisition.
“It has been told...” that’s how each story beings as grandparents pass them down to their grandchildren. These were the stories that the Damascenes believed in. However, they got lost with time. Within the old city, many of the old quarters have been changed and disfigured leaving these stories without a home.
