Working with a small charity called ‘Mishwar’ with a somewhat unique working method – empowering locals to support their own communities. Each character tells their own stories of how they got there, their struggles and their hopes for the future. Themes touched upon include torture, war, imprisonment, community action, human rights, justice, women and men’s conditions.
