"A documentary film by PeA Holmquist, Joan Mandel and Pierre Bjorklund."

One of the first documentaries which tells the story of occupied Gaza and the story of the Palestinian people. In the film we follow the life and the history of a family in Jabaliya refugee camp in Gaza. We also meet the Israeli soldiers who are patrolling the camp.

The film was shown on many festivals and in many countries and TV-stations. It was banned in Israel but shown there 10 years after it was made.
