Summary :
As the militias surrendered their arms to the Lebanese army at the end of the Lebanese war in 1991, Ali –a member of the Lebanese resistance- wrote a letter to the owners of the house his group had occupied for six years after it had become the frontline, welcoming them back and assuring them that his party had looked after their property. He placed the letter inside the shell of a B-10 mortar and buried it in the garden. In November 2002, Akram Zaatari took his video camera and a gardener and headed to this family’s village, Ain el Mir, to dig out Ali’s letter.
