For eight years, young Walaa was raised in Balata Refugee Camp while her mother was held in an Israeli jail. Now that her mother has been released in a much-publicized prisoner swap, Walaa can finally focus on her lifelong dream: joining the Palestinian Security Forces. What makes this dream difficult to attain is that few women make it into the forces. Will Walaa successfully tackle her demons and manage to craft a meaningful career for herself?
