“Probably one of the most powerful films, documentary or otherwise that I have ever seen. Riveting, heart breaking, gut wrenching, powerful... Amazingly and brilliantly told, shot and presented. I truly can't say enough about this important film.” - Mark Clayman, Executive Producer of The Pursuit of Happyness

"The devastation in Syria comes to life in this film because of the focus on two individuals amidst the destruction, rather than news coverage that shows only damages to facade. The people in the film and the people who made the film took on great risks to themselves for this production.” - Carolyn Woo, CEO of Catholic Relief Services

“Its current relevance moves it to the top of my list for documentaries that are must see films.” - Gabe Lyons, Founder of Q Ideas

"It is a reminder of the humanity and courage that persists even in the most violent and chaotic conflicts across the globe." - Marcela Escobari, Executive Director of the Center for International Development at Harvard University
