This documentary follows the daily life of the Aleppo family including a young boy, his brothers and parents, living in a rebel quarter, who have decided to stay and fight against Bachar El-Assad’s Army.

Has this generation of 13 to 16 year-old boys lost their childhood forever ? How do they adapt to a civil war? What values did they decide to defend staying in besieged Aleppo?And what will come next?
