Ziad wants no part of this terrible civil war, but what choice did the government give him? Ill-trained and poorly-equipped, he longs to leave the frontlines and return home to the simple life of a craftsman he once knew. Getting back won't be easy though. As enemy jets rain down missiles and the outside world doesn't seem to care, Ziad realizes his harrowing journey has just begun.

Five Days Untold is an unflinching portrait of war on the micro level, yet Ziad's struggle and determination to survive are at once instantly recognizable and profoundly universal to us all.
