After 5 years of War in Syria the remaining 350.000 citizens of Aleppo are preparing themselves for a siege. Through the volunteers from The White Helmets we experience daily life, death and struggle in the streets of Aleppo. Khalid, Subhi and Mahmoud are founding members of The White Helmets and are the first to enter the destroyed buildings, scouring through the rubble in search of bodies and signs of life. They have chosen to stay in Aleppo in order to save their people during the never-ending siege.
