That’s how the remaining kurdish families of Alipasa, a small neighborhood on Diyarbakir, southeast Turkey, try to survive. Everything else was destroyed, every one else was kicked out. And they know they’re next. "Umut means Hope" is a telling in first person of the struggle and resistance of kurdish families against the destruction of their history.
