FRONTLINE: Children Of Syria Since 2011, millions of Syrians have fled the brutal fighting inside their country, seeking safety, stability, and the chance at a better life in an exodus that has helped to fuel Europe's largest migration crisis since the end of World War II. Against this backdrop, Children of Syria is an unforgettable story of both sadness and survival, and a profound exploration of identity, family and the meaning of home.
Filmed on the ground as the fighting rages, the documentary follows four Syrian children - Sara, Farah, Helen, and Mohammed - over three years, from their struggle to live through the Assad regime's siege of their home city Aleppo, to the devastating kidnapping of their father, to the beginning of their new lives as refugees in Germany, ever cognizant of all they've lost and left behind.
With the Syrian war in its sixth year, its death toll now estimated at 470,000, and thousands of refugees arriving in Europe every day, FRONTLINE's Children of Syria is a story of war, grief, hope, and what it means to start again.
