In a rough style, by way of unique footage, the brutal consequences of modern wars are exposed. The film also depicts the ability of women and children to handle their everyday life after a dramatic war experience. Many of them live in tents or in ruins without walls or roofs. They are all in need of money, food, water and electricity. Others have lost family members, or are left with seriously injured children. Can war solve conflicts or create peace? The film follows three children through the war and the period after the ceasefire. Written by Anonymous

A great war film! No lies of F/X
3 August 2011 | by solanojohn55See all my reviews

This is one of the purest films I have ever watched, I recommended highly! First of all it is 100% pure footage of what is it like to be on the ground as a witness of what Israel claims to us all over the world as a military targets. A user of IMDb wrote in a review by moacow" we did not see the other side justification for this type of bombing" What a numb-skull user moacow is…How in the world can you or any one justifies bombing a civilian home or a hospital or a school or even shooting with a sniper rifle babies and more. MOACOW YOU CANNOT! that is why you did not see it in the film. Israel does not explain its U.N. and international courts condiment actions to anyone in the world.

As an English now American and married to a lovely American Jewish woman, I hope one day soon I will witness peace in Israel! We as people with understanding to life, we cannot let Israel continue the mass murders of Palestinians. Bloody hell! Did you notice the Israeli in-discriminant bombing of Palestinians? What kind of Army men with sniper rifles that shoots at babies and civilians? My grand fathers did not fight the criminal Hitler so Israel can take over his criminal role now they act exactly like if not worse than Hitler. My wife is ashamed of Israel and its despicable treatment of people. That is why we all must not allow Israel to enjoy our hard earned money taxes going to support their criminal behavior. We must pressure Israel to sign the 1948 agreement with the Palestinians. If they do sign it all troubles in the East will stop and maybe for once the world will not look down at our policies regarding the world. Please join me and write to your congressman and senator to pressure Israel in to signing the 1948 agreement with Palestine and stop the bloodshed of innocent people. One cannot claim to be a human being and agree with Israeli violence!
