This compelling documentary tells of the decade-long conflict through the words of a ten-year-old girl
For ten long years Syria’s children have suffered through conflict
. They have witnessed loved ones die, suffered from malnutrition, and had their education disrupted. On top of all this, their sense of safety and security has disappeared, leading to mental health and wellbeing issues; and for some post-traumatic stress disorders, learning difficulties, and behavioural issues.
This Save the Children documentary “A Syria Story” shows how children have been affected by a war they want no part in. This story sums up the experience of millions of children Save the Children have supported over the last 10 years of the conflict. It is a tragic story that at times is difficult to listen to, but it is an important story to hear.

A girl who should never have known what war means
Like millions of Syrian children, the ten-year-old girl who narrates the film knows all too well what war means. She talks about being besieged by airstrikes and shelling and having to flee her home.
