The White Helmets gained fame in 2014 when rescuers pulled an infant from the rubble—he was later dubbed the “miracle baby”—and again in August when the group helped save Omran Daqneesh. The boy in Aleppo was carried to an ambulance after an airstrike destroyed his family’s home and photographed alone and in shock. Footage of the rescue went viral, bringing attention back to the White Helmets and the crisis in the northern city that for years has been divided by government and opposition forces.


The film is directed by Orlando von Einsiedel, and produced by Joanna Natasegara.
