Using the real and vivid diaries of Tom Hurndall - this is a true life drama.

In February of last year Tom Hurndall set out for Baghdad with a group of human shields in order to make a photographic record of their story. From there he journied to Rafah in the Gaza Strip. This is a dramatic interpretation of that journey and uses many of Tom's own words. Written with the help and cooperation of Tom's family and friends. Some names and details have been changed.
