Sirens intimately chronicles the lives and music of Slave to Sirens, the Middle East's first all-women metal band, whose burgeoning fame is set against the backdrop of the Lebanese revolution. Its members wrestle with friendship, sexuality, and war as their music serves as a refuge to Beirut’s youth culture.

Lilas Mayassi and Shery Bechara

At the band’s core are its two founding members, Lilas Mayassi and Shery Bechara, whose complicated relationship and subsequent fallout threatens the very fabric of the group. An even greater looming threat, however, is the wholly devastating effects of Lebanon's repressive political regime.

Despite their obvious challenges, the members of Slave to Sirens persist in trying to create a revolution of their own: living their truth.

While we can draw parallels between the struggles of the band and the daily challenges that creatives face, it’s the resilience of marginalized communities that resounds and warrants amplifying their stories.
