March 2011 marked the spark of a still going uprising in Syria, a revolution for Justice, Dignity and Freedom.
Syrians had been held prisoners in their own country for over four decades, by a brutal monopoly political party "Al Ba'ath" headed by "Al-Assad" Family.
Public peaceful protests had developed into a nationwide uprising. Protesters demanded the resignation of President Bashar al-Assad, the overthrow of his government, and an end to nearly five decades of Ba'ath Party rule.
The Syrian government deployed the Syrian Army to quell the uprising, and several cities were besieged. According to witnesses, soldiers who refused to open fire on civilians were summarily executed by the Syrian Army. The Syrian government denied reports of defections, and blamed "armed gangs" for causing trouble. In late 2011, civilians and army defectors formed fighting units, which began an insurgency campaign against the regime Army. The insurgents unified under the banner of the Free Syrian Army.
According to various sources, including the United Nations, up to 8,000--11,000 people have been killed, many more have been injured, and tens of thousands of protesters have been imprisoned. The United Nations reported that over 400 children have been killed. Syria's government has dismissed this, characterizing claims from UN officials as being based on false news reports that originate from opposition groups. Additionally, over 600 detainees and political prisoners have died under torture. The UNICEF reported that over 400 children have been killed. Another 400 children have been reportedly arrested and tortured in Syrian prisons.
Using above statistics you "the viewer" should understand that by the time you finish watching the movie a Syrian had been killed in the fight for Freedom.
