Aleppo - one of the world's oldest continuously inhabited cities- is on the brink of starvation. Bombed from the skies and besieged on the ground, Aleppo was recently the centerpiece of a joint US-Russia deal aimed at stopping the violence and breaking the siege. 
  
Syria's heroic rescue workers, doctors, journalist and activists will offer an insider's view of what life is like in a city under siege. How have Aleppo's residents coped with the siege? What it will take to achieve peace after five years of bloodshed?
