In the winter of 2008, two young journalists found themselves in the middle of what would be the biggest story of both of their careers but what happened during 22 days in that winter changed their lives forever. While the rest of the world relied on their reporting due to a media blockade, Ayman Mohyeldin and Sherine Tadros risked their lives to tell the stories of those trapped in the middle of war with nowhere to go.

Ayman, a former CNN producer was assigned by Al Jazeera English to head their bureau in the Gaza Strip, which at the time was under an Israeli siege. Sherine, a Jerusalem-based producer for AJE was transitioning to reporter and was asked to go to Gaza for 24-hours to file a story. 24-hours turned into two and a half months.

On December 27, 2008 an onslaught of aerial strikes by the Israeli military began on the Gaza Strip and did not end for 23 days. Ayman and Sherine were the only international broadcast journalists inside Gaza. During the war, the two journalists on the ground in Gaza would recount the horrors of the violence in a way only those on the inside could have witnessed. But war took a toll on Ayman and Sherine as individuals and as colleagues. Differences emerged between Sherine and Ayman that threatened not only their friendship but also the very mission they set out to do at the beginning; cover the war for the whole world to see. Amidst the tensions, the two friends find themselves surrounded by extraordinary life-changing experiences, grim humor and a determination neither one of them realized they had.

The War Around Us is the raw story of Gaza and how two journalists reached the rest of the world from inside one of the most deeply divided and silenced places on the globe.
