The start of the Arab appraisals in March 2011 changed everything for Syrians: instead of reforms and hope it brought along a never-ending devastating war that has caused the biggest humanitarian catastrophe in the human history. Approximately 6 million people have escaped from Syria, around 6 million are displaced inside Syria. Turkey has received around 3 million of the displaced and around 500 000 of them have found a home in Istanbul. We will tell the story of 3 people who escaped Aleppo, the biggest city in Syria, because of the fighting.
Meet Marwa, Fuad and Hani, all of who have lived in Istanbul for almost 6 years. We will discover what it takes to start a life from the scratch, how to manage mentally and economically, what are the opportunities and dreams. The touching story opens the very intimate and personal perspective of those fleeing war.
