In the Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, for thirty years Chinari’s inhabitants have been trying to survive the war between the Azeris and the Armenians, and the difficult conditions imposed by a blockade. Young people walk several miles each day on their way to school, ignoring the danger of Azeri snipers. Villagers sell or exchange their meagre crops for a little sugar, cereal, or rare medicines. The inhabitants have to look after themselves. Only the wounded or the sick are transported to the military hospital.
