    Foreign reporters in conflict zones often rely on local 'fixers' - people who earn a living helping journalists get their stories.

    Raed Atharmneh is a fixer living and working in the Gaza Strip.

    Filmmaker George Azar chose to film Raed's daily life as he works to provide for 42 clan members. It was supposed to be a straightforward story.

    But Raed's world was about to be turned upside down by a terrible event which put Raed - albeit very briefly - at the very centre of international media attention.
