The mind behind Maram, Beyhum talks about how the team just wanted to showcase the life of such children who are forced to work because of the displacement showing their dreams and hopes. The primary reason behind this documentary was to discuss the grave issue behind Syrian displacement which talks about education of these children which should be the utmost priority regardless of their status.
