Throughout the three years Sarah Zeryab has lived in Beirut, WhatsApp has been the only means of communication between herself and her parents in Damascus. Sarah receives from her father a voice note of him singing her a song by Oum Kulthoum. It is through the voice notes exchanged with her parents that Sarah discovers that the war has reversed their roles: the adults have become children who devour memories of the past. She, meanwhile, asks herself, “What do my parents look like now?”
