Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad's breathtaking work, a searing example of boots-on-the-ground reportage, follows the efforts of the internationally recognized White Helmets, an organization consisting of ordinary citizens who are the first to rush towards military strikes and attacks in the hope of saving lives.

This is a tribute to the best of the documentary. It is the reality of what life is like for those folks caught in the middle of chaos, deprivation, and military strikes. This is a tough film to watch-- some of the footage is almost too real. But the shock of what children and parents have to endure makes the war in Syria a travesty. Try at least the first 10 minutes.

And the US never took a strong stand, nor purposefully intervened to prevent this war. Another sad case of an Arab version of Rwanda.

For all of us who turn a blind eye to the war in Syria, this documentary shows us what life is like for people who are unable to escape. A fascinating and devastating look at life in Aleppo.

Recommend, for historical value of war documentaries...and to gain a heart for the people there in the midst of the atrocities.

Use discernment when watching this film. Research the White Helmets. This film is a propaganda piece. Here is a review by a user on IMDB which sums this film up nicely:

"Daily reminder that white helmets are an al-qaeda-run propaganda operation. Every movie that whitewashes crimes of foreign funded terrorist groups deserves a 1/10, ez. I wish total victory to the syrian nation and quick demise to all supporters of islamism and globalism including some mediocre scandi film directors."

There is lots of evidence that the White Hats stage their "rescue" videos. Their "gassing" of children videos are diabolically staged with drugged and/or dead kids with people performing "medical" procedures on them who obviously don't know what they are doing. I have only watched the trailer, but I can tell already from the guy who "playfully" throws a child up in the air a little too high, that he doesn't have that much sensitivity to children's well-being. (Thank God he caught him.)

After five years of war in Syria, Aleppo's remaining residents prepare themselves for a siege. Khalid, Subhi and Mahmoud, founding members of The White Helmets, have remained in the city to help their fellow citizens-and experience daily life, death, struggle and triumph in a city under fire.
