Filmed over a five year period in Syria by Waad al-Kateab for her daughter Sama, this documentation of the Syrian uprising stands as a unique testimony of war from a woman's perspective giving audiences insight into the desperate situation Syrians faced when they dared to contend with an oppressive regime. The sacrifices activists made to remain in Aleppo when under fire shows the immense resilience of a people ignored by the world.
