7 Days in Syria Wikipedia
7 Days in Syria is a harrowing look at the human side of war and what so many refugees are escaping from within Syria. The film seeks out the heroes of Aleppo, chronicling the civilians keeping the city running, providing bread, administering medical supplies, burying dead bodies, and those internally documenting the atrocities for posterity and war tribunals. It's a war film unlike any other that also sheds light on the incredible distances journalists go to shine a light on some of the darkest places in the world.
7 Days in Syria gives a window into the lives of families struggling to survive on the frontlines of the Syria conflict. Their courage and resilience shines through in impossible circumstances.

If you could make a documentary required viewing, 7 Days in Syria would be it.
