description:

The film shows Waad al-Kateab’s life through five years in Aleppo, Syria before and during The Battle of Aleppo. An 18-year-old marketing student at the University of Aleppo when the uprising began in 2011, we watch as she falls in love, gives birth to her first daughter Sama and navigates motherhood all while the conflict begins to engulf the city. She and her husband, a doctor at one of the few remaining hospitals in the city, face an agonising decision to flee to safety or stay behind to help the innocent victims of war.
