West Bank, Palestine. Inside the Occupied territories by the Israeli military forces, the Palestinian inhabitants suffer on a daily basis from basic human rights violations. The occupation control the access to their territory, the natural resources and the freedom of movement. Ahmad Nasser, Samiha Jihad and Hashem Azzeh are examples of courage, beauty and struggle inside an unthinkable reality. Their stories testify the suffering they have experimented for years and that in many cases have a tragic ending.
