Wandering through Jordan, Beirut, Casablanca, Kuwait, Lebanon, Palestinians have never been freed from discrimination as gentiles where so ever they stay. Palestine is left as a picture-like paradise of milk and honey in their memory and imagination. Although many people have returned to their home land after the Oslo Peace Process and dreamed of a stable life leaving the previous nomadic one behind, the reality is still stern with ceaseless gun shots and disputes. As one of the residents of Palestine for 11 years, the filmmaker tells stories of settlers on the land who still hopefully believe in the future despite all the troubles... (Billy Choi)
