(KTVI) – What if London, or New York, or Toronto was under siege like Syria? That’s the point of an emotional and startling second-a-day video meant to bring home the reality of the war-torn nation and the people suffering there.

The short video features a happy, healthy little girl in what looks like one of those fun, time-lapse videos meant to show how a child changes over time.

After an unexpected turn, it ends with the words, “Just because it isn’t happening here, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.”

The video is getting quite a buzz online and has been viewed almost half a million times in less than a day.
