Haja Fatma, a mother of eight children, tells the tale of family life in Tripoli during the Libyan Revolution.

Women, young and old, all contributed during these hostile months in their own unique way. A human portal into the acts of ordinary people in their hope for freedom.

This short documentary was made during a SDI documentary workshop in Libya, organised by the British Council.
