1967. The world is alive with change: brimming with reawakened energy, new styles, music and an infectious sense of hope. In Jordan, a different kind of change is underway as tens of thousands of refugees pour across the border from Palestine. Having been separated from his father in the chaos of war, Tarek, 11, and his mother Ghaydaa, are amongst this latest wave of refugees. Placed in "temporary" refugee camps made up of tents and prefab houses until they would be able to return, they wait, like the generation before them who arrived in 1948. With difficulties adjusting to life in Harir camp and a longing to be reunited with his father, Tarek searches a way out, and discovers a new hope emerging with the times. Eventually his free spirit and curious nature lead him to a group of people on a journey that will change their lives. When I Saw You is the story of people affected by the times around them, in search of something more in their lives. A journey full of adventure, love, humor... Written by

In Jordan during the occupation of Palestine. A 10 year old boy and his mother in a refugee camp await his father who was separated from them during the Israeli occupation
The movie was good and bad. the person who made this film had a good idea they could have made it better i didn't care for the acting of the child and the story line.
This what basically happens is that he has trouble in the camp then goes decides to go back home in Palestine he meets fighters that want to go back to Palestine and fight for their land then he goes to the borders and the movie ends.
Yes, i liked the open ending because i allows the audience to decide what happens. I think they die but the ending gave me goose bumps. I hope people agree with me because i would rate this movie 6 out of 10.
