Sperm Smugglers

"I wish he could be with us now to raise his child and to care for him," says May, the wife of Fahmi Abu Salah, a Palestinian prisoner who is serving a 22-year sentence in an Israeli prison. "It would be the greatest happiness."

May and Fahmi's child, Asaad, was conceived through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) after Fahmi's sperm was smuggled to a clinic in the Gaza Strip. He is one of 32 babies born to the wives of Palestinian prisoners over a three-year span.

Raising babies conceived from sperm smuggled from Israeli prisons is a source of both hope and protest for prisoners, their wives and families.

A moving and fascinating film that profiles how this idea took shape inside a prison and how it is working.
