In the summer of 2014, the abduction and killing of three Jewish teenagers and the brutal murder of an Arab boy reignited a conflict that had never really subsided. What followed was the Gaza war.
In Jerusalem – one of the most divided cities in the world – a group of educational psychologists, both Jewish and Arab, work together to help school children cope with the mental scars caused by such extreme events.
While two enemies continue to fight a brutal war in front of the cameras, this invisible army of therapists fights to save lives and win the battle for peace. The War Inside shows how the stories and traumas of their patients challenge the psychologists’ own lives.
