From the Heart of the Incident is the extraordinary story of Dr Issam Bassalat Hijjawi, a highly respected and much-loved Edinburgh medical doctor and Palestinian activist held in a Northern Irish prison for nearly 16 months and released on bail, under heavy conditions. The doctor still awaits trial. Here he works with fellow Palestinian and poet Ghazi Hussein, director Robert Rae and actor Helen Trew to dramatize his ongoing story that led him to lose his livelihood, his health and his family.
