BEIRUT - More and more Lebanese are leaving - they see no future in the country that is virtually bankrupt. The situation has deteriorated further: the Lebanese lira continues to depreciate; access to electricity and water is increasingly limited. Soon, even telephone and internet services may fall if the government does not provide the state-owned company with diesel for its generators.

Just four years ago, young Lebanese were trying to change the country. They engaged politically because they believed that competence and a political programme could play a decisive role in elections - rather than belonging to a particular religious group. How do they imagine their future now, in a dysfunctional country? How do they manage? The project tells stories of those who do not give up and want to make a difference.
