An extraordinary personal insight into the families cut off between Gaza and the West Bank.

Palestine/Switzerland/UAE, 2012, 64 min. Courtesy of Sina Films.

Samer lives in the West Bank, one hour from his family in Gaza: they haven’t seen each other for six years. Mustafa visited Gaza seven years ago, aged 18: his mother has been fighting to see him ever since. Considered ‘infiltrators’ in their own country, parents can only talk to their sons over the phone; sisters only see their brothers on the internet…

An extraordinary glimpse of the daily reality for families torn apart and the struggles to stay connected.
