In a Shi'ite village of Southern Lebanon, close to the Israeli border, a group of inhabitants are performing a play. It is a ritual drama, relating the epic of the prophet Mohammed's family, a central theme in the mythology of Shi'ite Islam.
This is also an act of faith on their part, which will be rewarded in the afterlife. The audience is in tears.
