In the Western Sahara refugee camps near the Tindouf region, Algeria, two kids play with bullets that the army drops as dump near their homes.
Western Sahara was invaded in 1975 by Morocco, and people was moved to this refugee camps. Even when the armed conflict stoped in 1991, kids born here are victims of this "cold war" that Moroccan King keeps against the Polisario (Western Sahara army) since that year. New generations are born and raised inside the camps and show the foreigners the remains of war such as mines, tanks and bullets. Not knowing when this is going to end, they grow up hoping of moving to Spain or studying in another arab country.
