The two-part documentary follows the lives of four individuals- Amjad, Omar, Zena and Shahinaz, who are caught in between their places of refuge in Europe and the war-torn Syria they have left behind, a reality that they cannot escape from. These individuals receive videos and messages on their smartphones daily, giving them a glimpse into a world they once called home. The camera follows them as they struggle to come to terms with the war raging outside their new homes, showing how their daily lives are disrupted by the images of shelling, ISIS propaganda, and everyday conflict back in Syria.
This documentary is a moving and emotional portrayal of war in the digital age, showing how close it can be brought to our doors every minute of the day. It is a timely reminder of the harsh reality that so many people face across the world today. A story of resilience and hope, it offers viewers an intimate insight into the lives of those who have been forced to leave their homes behind and start a new life. In a world where conflict and displacement are increasingly pervasive, “The Digital War” is a story that needs to be told.
