The Girl From Gaza (zero budget documentary) tells the true story of a childhood lost in war. Set amid the conflict in Palestine where a single mother and daughter battle to survive under Israeli bombardment and Hamas control; fighting against patriarchal rules and gender inequality.
For more than a decade, the ongoing war in Gaza has wrought havoc on Mariam’s life – she spends much of her life ‘fighting for her future’ while feeling like her life is spiralling out of control.
As Mariam strives to escape Gaza through her education and scholarships – will she manage to make her bid for freedom?
