The War Show portrays the war in Syria from a young people's perspective. A Syrian radio DJ documents the experiences of herself and her friends throughout the 2011 Arab Spring, subsequent protests against Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and the resulting repression, forced migration and extremism. 

The film is a personal road movie that follows Syria's fate and a group of friends whose lives and dreams turn into nightmares, while the country collapses into chaos.
