Extraordinary Story of A Brave Doctor In A Besieged Syrian Hospital

From Feras Fayyad (Oscar®-Nominated Last Men in Aleppo)

In war-torn Syria, in a hidden underground field hospital, a female-led team of medical professionals and civilian caregivers works tirelessly to provide much-needed medical assistance to an embattled population. Last Men in Aleppo director Feras Fayyad’s new film shows this everyday courage in practice, following Dr. Amani, a 30-year-old aspiring pediatrician. Her medical studies interrupted by war, she leads a team serving the needs of Al Ghouta’s populace, battered by the Syrian civil war’s aerial bombardments and chemical warfare. An unforgettable portrait of everyday heroism, female camaraderie, the effort to mend, and the struggle for light in the dark. A National Geographic Documentary Films release.
