To scrape money together for the concert, Malook – 10 yrs – and some friends pull the copper lines out the walls of empty buildings that are riddled with bullets and rockets. In one of the most moving scenes, the children write apologies for their theft on the walls, should the people who have fled ever return. A spark of hope remains for the children and for us, too, as long as such acts and art – songs and wall paintings – survive.
