Storyline

Since civil war started in Syria in 2011, an estimated 9 million Syrians have fled their homes, half of them children. These children have fled unimaginable horror: the indiscriminate bombings of Bachar Al Assad's government, and ISIS' raping and beheading, only to find themselves trapped in makeshift camps or closed borders. We witness the journey of these refugees to the promised land of Europe.

Heartbreaking
31 May 2019 | by u-emoliSee all my reviews

This is a powerful well done documentary. It is not the only one done about the tragedy in Syria in the past few years and the ones by the BBC are probably way superior. But it is still a heartbreaking important documentary which the world should take notice of. Impossible not to spare a tear.
