From inside the siege of Ghouta it brings home the full awfulness of modern warfare, the bombing of defenceless civilians, the impact of chemical warfare on children and the everyday heroism of those who choose to remain behind to help. More than simply a story of unimaginable suffering, this is ultimately a story of resilience, courage under fire and a determination to believe that a better world is possible.
