Saeed chronicles modern Syria from the 50s up to his escape to Canada in 2016, recounting its descent from a country of potential to a pawn of cynical and corrupt powers. It paints a picture of village life, his rebellion as a young Marxist and evolution into a free thinker, living in hiding as a teen for 30 months while being hunted by the secret police, his youthful love affairs, how he survived his prison years, his final release, and his family's escape to Canada. While many prison memoirs focus on the cruelty of incarceration, My Road from Damascus offers a tapestry of Saeed's whole life.
