Palestine today... Three generations of Palestinians are fighting for their survival and the survival of their dreams, in their own way. Adults, a generation of resistance in all its forms. They struggles to live, to love, to preserve the identity and land. The children of the Intifada whose childhood was stolen. A voyage between the surface and the subsurface of the earth between the Apocalypse and serenity, between the violent reality and the compensator dream, between history and myth...
