  • Film description

    The dead lie among the rubble, the streets alive with crossfire. The scenes are familiar, but the actors, unknown. What the media don't show is that these snipers, grenade slingers, and rifle-waving freedom fighters all have former lives - selling vegetables, repairing refrigerators, and trading women's clothing. From the tragic to the mundane, this powerful doc gives Aleppians space to tell their own stories. A unique record of the life of a city.
