Documentary as part of the Big Stories 2014. Syria's war - well into its fourth year and with no end in sight - is having a devastating impact on the lives of the country's children. Tens of thousands have been killed or wounded. Many are learning to hate. Many more are deeply traumatised. With unique access across the conflict's frontlines, Lyse Doucet follows the lives of six children over six months. Filmed in Damascus, Homs and amongst the refugee community in Turkey, their stories offer an intimate and powerful insight into a country being torn apart. Syria's war is a war on childhood, and the lives of its children will shape the country's future for decades to come.
