Following the success of Dispatches' multi-award winning documentary Children on the Frontline, Channel 4 returns to the Syria conflict to tell the story of one affected family.
Currently under the working title of Children on the Frontline: The Escape the film revisits a middle-class family from northern Syria whose lives have been destroyed by the ongoing civil war.
"The whole tragic story of the civil war from the initial uprising against the Syrian regime, the emergence of Islamic State and the ensuing refugee crisis is captured through the story of four young children and their parents," said Executive Producer Chris Shaw. "It's a deeply personal account of life turned upside down by the Syrian conflict"
The first film relayed their day to day lives as they lived under threat from both the Syrian government and rebel soldiers.
The Dispatches crew now follow them as they make the decision to leave the war-torn city of Aleppo and head for Europe in a plight to rebuild their lives.
Shot over three years, the film depicts the journey of Hala accompanied by her daughters Sara, Farah, Helen and son Mohammed as they join thousands of other travellers on the road to Germany, via Turkey, in the hope of a better future.
The film is a collaboration between Channel 4 and ITN productions and directed by Marcel Mettelsiefen.
