The Syrian military blocks a major thoroughfare and citizens dismantle it. The clip begins with a long shot of Homs. It ends with a shot of snipers on the top of a building.
The documentary film Return to Homs provides an unprecedented look at the Syrian conflict--a fight largely waged behind a media blackout. The film focuses on Abdul Basset Saroot, once the teenage goalkeeper of the Syrian national soccer team, who morphed into a peaceful advocate of Arab Spring reforms and then into an armed opponent of President Bashar al-Assad's regime ready to be martyred for his cause.
