During the war in Syria, children in areas controlled by Islamist groups were involuntarily recruited as fighters and forced to witness barbaric executions. The Syrian Army has now taken back control, but these children are still haunted by what they saw, what was done to them, and the brainwashing they received. ISIS taught a six-year-old girl to handle weapons and an eleven year old boy had to dig tunnels and fight for Jaish Al Islam, who also turned a teenager into a sniper and then tortured him in prison. A little boy beheads his sister’s doll.

In “Where Childhood Died”, child fighters go back to the tunnels they fought from, while their families, a teacher and a child psychologist talk about the ongoing emotional damage to children, and their attempts to repair it.
