One can infer that the young woman in the video clip enjoyed the solitude of ice skating alone. Amidst the chaos of camp—the people, the lines, and the dust storms—she seems to have found a peaceful moment to herself, perhaps to reclaim nicer memories. There is dignity in both her demeanor and the elegant way she is dressed; a stark contrast to the camp and its rows and rows of barracks.
