Based on our award-winning film Budrus, the graphic novel tells the story of the unarmed struggle in the village through the eyes of 15-year-old Iltezam Morrar. It focuses on the pivotal role the women and girls of Budrus played in building and sustaining a nonviolent campaign that was ultimately able to unite unlikely allies across political lines and save the village's lands and olive trees.
