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.

Upsetting tragedy of war refugees all over world
24 May 2019 | by tomperuhawaiiSee all my reviews

This heartbreaking documentary is a truly shocking portrayal of the tragedies of Syrian refuge children as they are dragged from their war ridden country thousands of miles across sea and land to find a new life. Shame on the dictators of this war ridden planet whose ego is bigger than their heart.
