When FRONTLINE filmmaker Olly Lambert visited a public high school in the village of Aziziya, students erupted into a spontaneous demonstration in support of the Syrian regime. The villagers of Aziziya are nearly all Alawite, a religious sect whose faith is loosely rooted in Shia Islam, and nearly all of them support the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
