Following the Six-Day War in 1967, a young Palestinian boy yearns to be reunited with his father. Restlessly cooped up in a Jordanian refugee camp, he secretly sets out on his own and is taken under the wing of a group of young freedom fighters. Together, they embark on a journey of adventure, driven by an unshakable resolve to be free. This heartfelt and moving film, Palestine's entry for the 2013 Academy Awards, is suffused with a distinct sense of this revolutionary time and place.
