Storyline

A Palestinian boy becomes entranced with a beautiful Gypsy girl and a fairy tale world she weaves amidst conflict in Gaza. The children explore nature, mysticism and what their future holds, while learning to live with the surrounding brutality c. 1990. Yusef's family scrapes by in a seaside camp while his father's in prison and his heavily-armed brother's on the run, parrying with Israeli troops. Salah, Yusef's schoolmate from a well-off Arab family strives faithfully to assist them, while Yusef helps an elderly, blind neighbor escape from his lonely abandonment into the North American dreamworld he's waited so long for.

A little too short.
13 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed the music. The photographer did a good job of showing the violence. In the two violent scenes, you would feel as if you were there witnessing.

It is a good movie for children, too. It is about a story for a young boy and a young girl. In the short 50 minutes, we can feel the active war going on in Gaza strip, people's lives are in danger. A dominant force presents its power over the innocent people.
