It’s easy to forget that the war in Syria began when peaceful protests against the Assad dictatorship were met by a harsh military crackdown. This harrowing and unforgettable documentary follows 18-year-old Basset, a goalkeeper for the Syrian national soccer team. He starts off as a hopeful, charismatic leader of the street protests but transforms into a tireless guerrilla leader. “Return to Homs” captures the true face of bravery. Must see.
