The film focuses on the Palestinian Intifada and it's effects on the people from Israeli occupation. It's shown partly from the eyes of a 13 year old boy named Mohammad, who travels to the Karin crossing almost daily to throw stones at the Israel troupes. His father's in prison and Mohammad supports his family by selling newspapers. The one thing I am always so shocked to see is so many children involved in affairs of war instead of just being kids. Mohammad has lost most of his friends to bullets and his heart is full of hate. His people blame Great Britain and the United States, the great "Super Powers", for not coming to their aide. The weapons of the Palestinians are meager in comparison to what Israel uses against them. Israeli armies also attack with tear and nerve gas, causing severe nerve damage and pain.
We tend to only hear about stone throwing and suicide bombings making the Palestinian people out to be terrorists. I'm glad I watched this documentary so I could get a better picture of what life really is like living in the Gaza Strip. With their land stolen, and treated like they just don't matter, these people face a genocide that is reminiscent of what the Nazi's did to the Jews. I don't believe we hear much about that part in the news. I recommend viewing this film so you know the whole truth.
