Over a period of seven months in 2012, a group of Syrian women created video diaries to let the world know what living under Bashar al - Assad's rule is like. In this documentary, the six tell how revolution and war transformed their lives. "At first I was for the reforms," says Sima. "When did I change my mind? When there was blood." Although most support the anti-government revolt and have paid for that stance—Ayat’s house was bombed, Khawla was imprisoned—Yara, a reporter for the official news agency SANA, explains why she still supports the regime. Viewers also meet Maria, a member of the Christian opposition, and Maya, a filmmaker who is deeply involved in the pro-democracy movement. (Portions with English subtitles.)
