What would it be like if the UK was war torn like Syria? A new video by international NGO Save the Children imagines just that, through the eyes of a young girl:


The disturbing video features shots of the girl as she goes about her normal life over the course of a year. The video begins and ends with the child celebrating her birthday. Between shots, we see how her life changes dramatically as war ravages her country.

The video marks the third anniversary of the conflict in Syria, in which over 10,000 children have died and over 2 million have become refugees.
