From Aleppo to Los Angeles, teen transitions to a new life

Dalya Zeno and her mother left their home in Syria in 2012, making a new life for themselves in Glendale. “Dalya’s Other Country” is a documentary that follows Zeno through her high school years, as the Syrian war continues, and as President Trump comes to power.

Dalya Zeno attended an all-girls Catholic school when she moved from Aleppo to Glendale.
