Soufra follows the unlikely and wildly inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur,
Mariam Shaar – a generational refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burl El Barajneh
refugee camp just south of Beirut, Lebanon. The film follows Mariam as she sets out to
change her fate by launching a catering company, “Soufra,” and then expand it into a food
truck business with a diverse team of fellow refugee woman who now share this camp as
their home. Together, they heal the wounds of war through the unifying power of food
while taking their future into their own hands through an unrelenting belief in Mariam,
and in each other. In the process, Mariam is breaking barriers, pulling together Syrian,
Iraqi, Palestinian and Lebanese women to work side by side and form beautiful friendships
while running this thriving business.
Soufra will shine a new and revealing light on people inside of the largest refugee crisis
in human history, but ultimately this film is about hope, grit, passion and the common
bonds created by bringing people together around food as a bridge to overcome all barriers.
Though Mariam is officially considered “stateless” she is a beacon of hope and home for
thousands upon thousands of women in the most unlikely of places. Mariam and her team
will be just that for thousands more once her story is told through Soufra.
