About the FILM

Discover the inspiring story of Mariam Shar, a smart and tenacious entrepreneur who has spent her entire life in the Bourj el Baranjneh refugee camp south of Beirut, Lebanon. Together with a group of fellow refugee women from Syria, Palestine and Iraq, Mariam sets out to beat the odds and launch the world’s first refugee-owned food truck. A triumphant testament to the unifying power of food, Soufra shines a light on the people working from within the refugee crisis to break barriers and change their fates.
