Fresh off its Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, this documentary covers Aleppo's remaining residents who, after five years of war, prepare themselves for a siege. Khalid, Subhi, and Mahmoud (founding members of The White Helmets) have remained in the city to help their fellow citizens-and experience daily life, death, struggle and triumph in a city under fire.
