Absolutely heartbreaking to watch, this emotionally draining piece of history. I went from crying to sadness to hope, all within minutes. I cannot begin to imagine what living through those years were like. Unfortunately, this is reality for too many people still.

Heartbreaking testimony to what humans are capable of doing to one another. History repeats itself; only the names and places change.

It is too difficult to explain what life in Aleppo looks like. Everyone should watch this film to get a glimpse of what Syrian refugees are escaping. I cannot imagine what kind of life it would be living in the midst of a civil war.
