An intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war. The story of Waad Al-Kateab’s life through five years of the uprising in Aleppo, Syria as she falls in love, gets married and gives birth to Sama, all while conflict rises around her.
This multi award winning film is often a painful and brutally honest account of terrible events but nonetheless, is a hugely important documentary for Western audiences.
