The true story of a young Glaswegian nurse battling to survive in the besieged Palestinian refugee camp of Gourj al Brajneh, Beirut. Suzy Wighton talked about what it was like living on a day-to-day basis in a war zone, with the memory of the horrific 1985 massacre at nearby Shatilla camp fresh in mind, knowing that few outside were even aware of the appalling suffering and degradation. So that the lives - and deaths - of the Palestinians would not pass unnoticed, Wighton knew that she had to somehow record the stories, hopes and fears of the camps dwellers. Men, women and children came to "Suzy's clinic" carrying any scraps of paper they could salvage, old hospital registers, cardboard boxes, and then smuggled out the diaries past the guns of the soldiers, strapped underneath their clothes.
