Extraordinary and personal view into the war in Syria
12 November 2017 | by mrsmarisolriddellSee all my reviews

I find myself, having just finished watching this film, feeling blessed beyond measure. I live my life, in comfort and ease. So few worries. SO do these volunteer medics, until they leave of their own accord and volunteer in the midst of war, with no benefits, no pay, nothing. Just a set of memories that will both haunt and comfort them. Memories of those who could not be saved, and those who were.

The storyteller brought us in through his eyes and shared the story without blinders, but with the blinding truth. I will be forever changed by what I saw.
