About the film:
As the Syrian conflict enters its seventh year, millions of people continue to be displaced. After Spring is the story of what happens next. By following two refugee families in transition and an aid worker fighting to keep the camp running, viewers will experience what it is like to live in Zaatari, the largest camp for Syrian refugees. With no end in sight for the conflict or this refugee crisis, everyone must decide whether or not they can rebuild their lives in a place that was never meant to be permanent. Executive Produced by Jon Stewart.
