From 1975 to 1990, the Lebanon was involved in a devastating civil war which cost the lives of about 200,000 people. A whole generation of young people fought in the name of different faiths.
In the wake of the war, many of these young militiamen have found peace in an unlikely place. “Wheels of War” tells their story.
