“Chaos” narrates the story of three women in three different cities, each of whom has given up on life. One lives in Damascus. She has stopped speaking to others entirely, isolating herself in her flat. The other left for Sweden, where she imprisons herself in her paintings, hoping through them to rid herself of the torments of the past. The third ended up in Vienna and faces an unknown future. It is a discussion between a woman stuck in Damascus, a second stuck in exile, and a third who has recently left. It is a conversation between the interior and exterior – an impossible conversation.
