From the Chicago suburbs, Ala’a, an American teenage girl, helps run the revolution in Syria. Through social media she coordinates for Aous, a student in Damascus who braves snipers to organize protests, and Bassel, a film student who left his scholarship to show the world what Syrian State TV won’t broadcast. Through camera phones and social media, Ala’a helps turn the world’s eye to the crisis in Syria. But just because the world can see the atrocities doesn't mean that the world can help. Ultimately, Ala’a and her network must choose between social media and AK-47s.
