Just when Rana was due to complete her studies in Syria, her home was tragically destroyed in the conflict, forcing her to emigrate to Doha. Unable to transfer courses without an official high school transcript, she returns to Damascus and through perseverance and determination achieves her goal of graduating and enrolling at Qatar University. Shot mostly on her camera phone, ‘Doubled’ is a personal and inspiring portrait of a student as she travels between Damascus and Doha in pursuit of her academic dreams.
