English Synopsis
In the thick of a civil war, a doctor and a young journalist fall in love. While Aleppo, their city, is being bombed, they marry and have a beautiful baby.

Director and civilian journalist Waad al-Kateab captures on film the day-to-day events involving her family and her city. Meanwhile her husband Hamza works in the emergency hospital he has set up, a location that eventually becomes a target for another round of bombing. As the danger comes ever closer, the young family struggles with a dilemma: should they flee to guarantee the safety of their daughter Sama or stay on to help their friends and others who are still in the city and working for the resistance?

For Sama offers an insider’s view of the Syrian tragedy; war doesn’t get any closer than this. Waad’s commentary on the unfolding situation takes the form of a mother’s letter to her child. At last May’s Cannes Film Festival, the film won the award for Best Documentary and recently carried off the IDFA Audience Award and nominated for the Oscar Best Documentary 2020.
