Shot in the urgency of the July 2006 war led by Israel against Lebanon, these eight short videos present a ledger of how the average Lebanese negotiated their daily lives during and right after the war. Compelling vignettes that give a voice to a street-cleaner in the deserted Martyrs' Square, residents from the south displaced and relocated to public schools, a volunteer rescue worker in the southern suburbs, parents and kin during an informal memorial celebration. Far from the bombastic media frenzy, the tragedy of war is recorded with humility and simplicity.
