Filmed in Hebron, the West Bank, this debut documentary by Swedish journalist Terje Carlsson is centred around a touching portrait of 17year old Leila Sarsour. A student at the AlQurtuba school, Leila�s home and community is surrounded by Israeli military outposts, checkpoints and settlements. Leila speaks about the oppression that impacts upon her life and those of her friends and family � in the form of relentless attacks, harassment and bullying by soldiers and settlers. Carlsson�s film is at once a portrait of one young woman�s daily triumphs over oppression and adversity, and of the tortured city of Hebron itself.
