Synopsis

This documentary is an intimate, and often humorous, portrait of three generations of exiled Palestinians in the refugee camp of Ein el-Helweh, in southern Lebanon. Based on a wealth of personal recordings, family archives and historical footage, the film is a sensitive and illuminating study of belonging, friendship and family. Filmed over more than 20 years by multiple generations of the same family, it is more than just a family portrait; it is an attempt to record what is being forgotten, and mark what should not be erased from collective memory.
