Sinds het uitbreken van de burgeroorlog in 2011 raakt Syrië steeds meer geïsoleerd. De internationale gemeenschap durft niet in te grijpen en het regeringsleger van Assad, de rebellengroeperingen en strijders van IS plegen aanhoudend geweld tegen hulpverleners, burgers en journalisten. Het land wordt elke dag onveiliger, waardoor er nauwelijks pers aanwezig is om getuigenis af te leggen van de excessen.
Robert Dulmers is altijd al gefascineerd geweest door oorlogsgebieden. Hij laat zich niet afschrikken door het geweld en met gevaar voor eigen leven reist hij twee maanden kriskras door het land. Geen enkele westerse journalist heeft sinds het uitbreken van de oorlog toestemming van het regime gekregen om zo lang in Syrië te verblijven: Dulmers is de eerste Nederlandse journalist sinds jaren die op deze manier door het land reist. Hij spreekt niet alleen met kopstukken van het regime en met vechtende generaals aan het entrance, maar ook met kunstenaars, paters en archeologen.
Bonbons voor mevrouw Assad is een unieke en verhelderende kijk achter de oorlogslinies. Dulmers’ verslag is niet alleen spannend en meeslepend, maar hij laat eveneens de andere, minder bekende kant zien van een land in een slopend conflict, waarvan niemand weet wat de uitkomst zal zijn.
