What's all this?

Aid for the South?

Yes, we're taking it there.

You're going to fill up the truck?

Aid parcels only?

- Omar.

God bless your son, Abou Omar.

My cousin has two daughters.

One is dead...

In the fighting?

The other lost a leg...

They have no medicine in the South.

Can you give me some?

The Foundation will give you some.

I'm in a hurry.

We could put

a couple of boxes in the boot.

- Aren't you in charge?

- Exactly. To make sure it all gets there.

- It's your lorry?

- Yes.

So you could give me two boxes?

I took two kids

and left the others in a garage.

- You left them behind?

- Yes!

When we went back to the village,

Under the rubble,

we found my husband, his brother,

his wife and four children.

My cousin, shot down outside.

Eleven people.

That's life.
