The Boy from Aleppo Who Painted the War
"I have the urge to paint and I can already see the painting in my head. Two young boys lying in the water with their bodies spread open, free, but their faces disfigured, burnt. It would be a black-and-white painting with the faces a spectrum of colours. It's going to be horrible and beautiful all that the same time."

Adam is a 14-year-old boy with Asperger Syndrome trying to understand the Syrian conflict and its effect on his life, so he paints his feelings. Yasmine, his beautiful older sister devotes herself to Adam, sacrificing her true happiness as she tries to protect the ones she loves. But Yasmine herself has to cope with her own traumas when she is taken by soldiers. Their three brothers, too, struggle -- on whether or not to take sides, and the consequences of their choices.
