Life consists of "of humiliation, lack of food, and cold" Leila, a wife, mother and refugee explains. She begins to weep for her children. One her daughters Fatma "always has tears in her eyes because she saw four martyrs die." Life is harsh on both sides, but the camp does afford security and safety. Selim, Leila's husband sits with a group of men, a recruiter hails through microphone for willing fighters; "any man with military training who avoids registration will be considered a traitor" he shouts. Selim wants to fight, but as we are left contemplating those that risk everything, the quandary of Syria's refugee's is exposed.
