‘An old Palestinian man’s world is turned upside when he’s suddenly granted the right to return.’
Ain El-Helweh refugee camp, 40 kilometres south of Beirut. As dawn breaks, the camp is plunged into chaos with the sudden arrival of several high profile UN officials.
It quickly transpires that the people of Ain El-Helweh have been granted the right to return to their homeland. The inhabitants go wild with excitement. The day that many of them thought would never come has suddenly arrived. But before Abu Osama, one of the camp’s longest residents can return to Palestine – he must first come to terms with leaving home.
