The sun is already high in the sky when Yarê is woken up by her mother. At least the stomach pains that had been bothering the girl are gone. They were caused by the stagnant water she drank. In the sparsely populated desert between northern Syria – Kurdistan, Rojava – and Turkey, water is scarce. It is traded like a luxury item, and the price in the store sometimes doubles from one day to the next.
