The Shebabs have made up a small group of boys and girls since theywere teens. Now on the eve of adulthood, they have a genuine thirstfor life and for absolute, while being all confronted to intricatesituations. Between the need for freedom and sticking to the group,between longing for revolt and the prospect of a well-ordered life,choices are hard to make; even more so if you’re a Palestinian refugeein the camp of Yarmouk, in Syria.
