“Escaping the horrors of war”
BORN IN SYRIA follows the ordeal of seven children on their trip from Aleppo to Europe. And then portraits their new lives in Germany and Belgium to discover the challenges they have to face.
Since civil war started in Syria in 2011, an estimated 9 million Syrians have fled their homes, half of them children.
These children have fled unimaginable horror: the indiscriminate bombings of Bachar Al Assad’s government, and ISIS’ raping and beheading, only to find themselves trapped in makeshift camps or closed borders.
We witness the journey of these refugees to the promised land of Europe.
