CON 03 Lionhearted

The characters in “Lionhearted” live on the razor’s edge, and yet still demonstrate the courage for all-or-nothing decisions: The doctor treating patients as bombs fall on Aleppo, the mother searching for her lost son in Taliban territory, the young woman accepting hardship over expediency to preserve both her faith and her family. They make these choices for love, friendship or a sense of mission. Regardless, once the decision’s made, there’s no turning back.
