A love letter from a young mother to her daughter, the film tells 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 cataclysmic conflict rises around her. Her camera captures incredible stories of loss, laughter and survival as Waad wrestles with an impossible choice - whether or not to flee the city to protect her daughter's life, when leaving means abandoning the struggle for freedom for which she has already sacrificed so much.

What we think

This remarkable, gripping, heart-pounding documentary – surely one of the most essential war films ever made? – was born out of filmmaker Waad Al-Khatea’s attempt to capture the slow death of her city from the initial 2011 uprising until it finally fell in 2016.
