Victory or Die as Martyrs


The revolution in Libya starts on the 17th of February 2011. In very short time I found myself go from the regular everyday life to the complete war life. Unfortunately I was not the only one.

The documentary follows five characters, I am one of them.The characters have different personalities, and from different cities. We didn't know each other, but we are from the same country and we fought the same enemy, for the same reasons. Which is liberating the country, and the revenge of losing our friends and relatives, and the avenge for them.

I am more lucky than the others, because I have more possibilities to work with my war memories in Sweden. In the beginning our goals were common, to kill Gaddaffi.
What goals do the others have today?
How do they regain their lives or start a new one after having witnessed the rape of a sister or the murder of their children and friends?
Do they have posttraumatic stress as well?
Do they have the same symptoms I have?
How do they suffer from the posttraumatic stress that probably they never heard about?
I have so many questions in this issue.
I don’t see myself as a character and what I went and still going through as a story - it is my life.
