"Last Men in Aleppo" tells the human story of two men caught up in the ongoing catastrophe that is the Syrian civil war. They are members of a White Helmet unit: Khaled, a boisterous family man and Mahmoud, a quiet man uncomfortable with any displays of heroism. Director Fayyad emphasizes that these are normal men acting in extraordinary circumstances because they view their lives as a sacrifice for others. The film immerses the audience in the world of the White Helmets immediately. As they walk the city, they constantly survey the skies for sounds of helicopters, and, after they hear of an attack, they rush towards the wreckage where they search for bodies. They're plagued by insufficient resources and near constant obstacles but when they're off the clock they crack jokes and complete personal projects, like a makeshift pond. Aleppo will always be their home, and as long as it's under siege, people like Khaled and Mahmoud will be there to protect it.
