Rachel Anderson, an American journalist who was embedded with several youth groups in Libya in Feb/Mar 2011, returns to document and file weekly reports on the real life experiences of how the revolution is affecting the young fighters and activists. From influential rap music, to new freedoms for young women, revolution manifests itself in unexpected ways.
