Since his birth Muhi, a seven-year-old boy from Gaza, has been living in an Israeli hospital, unable to return home. He is medically saved but still caught in paradoxical circumstances that transcend identity, religion and the conflict that divides his world. With his time running out, Muhi faces the most consequential decision of his life. Suspended between the Israeli and Palestinian political bureaucracies, Muhi’s tale is both a heart-rending and uplifting account of the human consequences of the absence of peace.
Directed by Rina Castelnuovo-Hollander and Tamir Elterman
