Synopsis

As in his previous film Return to Homs, Syrian documentary filmmaker Talal Derki returns to his homeland and becomes part of life in a war zone. For more than two years he lives with the family of Abu Osama, an Al-Nusra fighter in a small village in northern Syria, focusing his camera mainly on the children. Talal Derki sets out to capture the moment when the children have to let go of their youth and are finally turned into Jihadi fighters.

It still is a shocking reality of the 21st century. It seems that they were raised with love, but they are already condemned to be part of the suicide army, and they are not even teenagers yet.
