In the heart of Syria’s most brutal warzone, ordinary citizens who’ve come to form the internationally recognized White Helmets rush into fire and rubble in the hope of saving lives. At the center of Feras Fayyad’s boots-on-the-ground reportage are the lives of three founders – Khaled, Subhi, and Mahmoud – as they grapple with the chaos around them and struggle with an ever-present dilemma: do they flee, or stay and fight for their country?
