SYNOPSIS:


Over two years later, with thousands dead, the ongoing conflict in Syria has become a microcosm of political tensions in the Middle East and an unsavory portrait of the world at large. Against the backdrop of the Arab Spring and the complicated politics of the region, this film seeks to explore the Syrian conflict through the humanity of the civilians who have been killed, abused, and displaced to the squalor of refugee camps. In all such conflicts, civilians – women, children, families and whole communities – suffer pain from who has the power and they get caught in thecrossfire. When elephants go to war, it is the grass that suffers!
