From gunshot wounds to shattered jaws and lost limbs, the Syrian refugees arriving in Israel face life-threatening injuries with life-altering repercussions. As a team of doctors and plastic surgeons, many of them Arab-Israelis, work around the clock to save their patients’ lives and offer hope for recovery, the refugees find strength in themselves with the support of their loved ones and the incredible team of doctors, nurses, and social workers seeing them through their recovery process.

THE SYRIAN PATIENT is a must-see documentary that calls attention to the profound loss of life and agency for the many young casualties of the Syrian Civil War.
