Near the areas occupied by ISIS in northern Syria a family struggles to find what they should stand for after a revolution. That revolution turned into an international mercenary war spreading sectarianism and extremism in a country that was once a harmonic grinder of all religious ethnicities; like a Mihbaj. -

Syria is headline news since five years; yet, the nuances of its tragedy seem an enigma to many. MIHBAJ tries to shed a light on the humanitarian side of this crisis that scattered Syrians as refugees in many European countries, troubled the conscience of the civilized world and divided most families by animosity and fanatic allegiances. At this time of confusion and fear-mongering we offer an objective view of the Syrian conflict; hoping to inspire and inform others on a personal, family level.
