A GAY GIRL IN DAMASCUS: THE AMINA PROFILE explores the story of Amina Arraf, a Syrian- American revolutionary whose blog A Gay Girl in Damascus acquires a huge following as the Syrian uprising gains momentum. Sandra Bagaria, a smart, young Montreal professional, is involved in an online affair with her when Amina is allegedly abducted by the Syrian secret police-sparking an international movement to save her from torture, rape or even death. Playing out like a detective story, that involves American intelligence agencies, major global media outlets, and a host of activists and sympathizers. But what starts as a love story becomes a tale of deceit and betrayal enabled by the global internet and viral social media.
