A focused look into Syrian refuges
27 March 2018 | by aintdoomSee all my reviews

A single story out of many heart breaking ones of Syrian refuges, that is well decorated with many important details that tell the severity of the problem, not focusing on politics and money related matters, but mostly from a social interaction perspective. I felt the end was a bit rushed, but all together, a great one.
