What can we do to stop the war in Yemen? An engaging documentarist pokes into our complacency and apathy towards injustice that does directly impact our daily lives.

Filmmaker Tanja Holm takes to the streets of Stockholm to ask passers-by what we should do with the war in Yemen. The reactions and answers she gets are both disheartening and entertaining at the same time.
