"Until the lion tells his side of the story through
the media network - uncensored by hunters,
the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter."

"It's love in the time of occupation as Pamela Olson... takes us on the emotional roller-coaster of her very personal experience of life in Ramallah - and in doing so, lays bare the human drama of a people... determined to live free."
