Duration: 3:42 min
Synopsis: With the kind of revealing honesty best expressed by children, this film features a touching dialogue between two Palestinian siblings (a sister and her disabled brother) sitting in a park. Through their poignant conversation (which apparently occurs in flashback), the audience learns about the fate of one of the siblings as a result of tragic events caused by the Israeli occupation. The film is based on a true story in Jenin, enacted by the children to demonstrate how their lives have become fractured by suffering and loss, yet their hopes and dreams continue.
Filmmakers: Yara Shelbak, Saleh Hawasheen, Ayaa Zoudhi, Walah Whadi, Alah Aqwaes
