Synopsis

Terror and Hope: The Science of Resilience offers a unique window into the impact of war on children through the pioneering work of a small group of scientists and humanitarians. The film follows researchers from Yale, Harvard and Hashemite Universities as they investigate the impact of toxic stress on young refugees from the brutal Syrian civil war. Following them in their research in Jordan's refugee camps and communities, we witness the role that science is playing to impact one of our planet's most intractable social problems. Due to the innovative work of these dedicated researchers and aid workers, there is hope for the future of children scarred by war.
