Amidst the chaos of arms, ammunition and unrest, four Syrian activists pick up a camera for the first time to show the world their perspective of the Syrian revolution from the mountain city of Zabadani. The harsh reality of their situation is in contrast to their hometown, which once used to be a popular summer destination for tourists from around the country.
