Every mural - a martyr, a dead friend. The martyrs are celebrated but what about the ones that are still alive? Omar and Mohammed live in Dheisheh refugee camp close to Bethlehem. They paint murals of their dead friends on the street walls in the camp. Every year, there are more martyrs - more faces on the walls. They stare at you while walking through the camp. Omar and Mohammed are everyday survivors in a struggle with seemingly no solution, no end. They must decide: Do they want to become a face on a wall themselves, remembered as martyrs or do they step out of that vicious circle?
