POV: Return to Homs

About This Episode


War changes people, including 19-year-old Basset Saroot, who went from star goalkeeper for the Syrian national soccer team to peaceful advocate for Arab Spring reforms to armed insurgent. Return to Homs, which focuses on Basset and his ragtag group's transformation and struggles, is a heart-stopping, often wrenching study of the brutal war President Bashar al-Assad's regime has waged against the Syrian people — a war fought mostly out of camera range that has produced epic heroism and tragedy.
