50 Feet from Syria 50 Feet from Syria

'50 feet from Syria' follows Syrian-American surgeon Hisham Bismar as he travels to the Turkish/Syrian border to volunteer operating on victims from the Syrian civil war. A successful hand surgeon in the United States, Hisham decides he cannot continue to watch images of wounded Syrian refugees flow across international borders without acting on his impulse to help. Hisham’s journey serves as a portal into one of today’s most brutal, dehumanizing conflicts and into the lives of remarkable people working to save lives at great personal risk.
