The Shu'afat refugee camp lies on the edge of Jerusalem. Holding blue Jerusalem IDs, but now separated from the city by the wall and a checkpoint, residents of the camp find themselves caught between Jerusalem and the West Bank. Deprived of civil services, the camp has become an overcrowded, no-man's land plagued by garbage, drugs, and violence. Out of the daily struggle for survival and identity emerges G-Town, a young rap group bringing voice to life in the camp and defining Jerusalem's Palestinian hip-hop.
