Zahraa lives in Nabaa with her two kids, ages eight and twelve, in a room on the top of a building. They stay in semi-permanent darkness in this house. Angelina, the youngster, learns, writes, and draws by the light of a cell phone, and when we turned on the camera, she complained, saying, “My eyes hurt me.”
This is the situation of youngsters in Lebanon who have grown bored of being blinded by full illumination… owing to a lack of habit.
The story of Zahra does not end here. Despite her great poverty, her actual pain stops her from experiencing unfairness.
