Storyline

Two Americans deliberately head to the edge of war, just seven miles from the Syrian border, to live among 80,000 uprooted refugees in Jordan's Za'atari refugee camp. As the first filmmakers allowed by the United Nations to register and set-up a tent inside a refugee camp, Zach and Chris plunge into the heart of the world's most pressing humanitarian crisis. From meeting Um Ali, a woman struggling to overcome personal loss and cultural barriers, to the street smart, 10-year-old Raouf, whose trauma hides just beneath his ever present smile, Zach and Chris uncover inspiring stories of individuals rallying, against all odds, to rebuild their lives and those of their neighbors.

In-depth look at an important issue
29 March 2016 | by davidjtempleSee all my reviews

Like many people, I hear about Syrian refugees on the news all the time, but I've never really had an opportunity to dig in. It always feels like too heavy of an issue for me to really make a difference or wrap my head around it.

What I loved about this film is that it shows you what's happening to the actual people themselves — without getting bogged down in all the politics and history. If you'd asked me to describe what a refugee camp was like, I never could have told you anything before. Now I have a clear picture of what it means to be in a refugee camp — and the impact this is having on real people.

It's a fantastic film, I highly recommend it. I love that you get to know real people who are actually living in the camp. And it tells their stories without overly dramatizing them. The film lets the stories tell themselves.

I loved it. Definitely worth watching.
