A raw, first-person account of the last war in Gaza, July 2014. Mohamed Jabaly, a young man from Gaza City, joins an ambulance crew as war approaches. What is it like to grow up under constant threat? How can Mohamed find his place in a country under siege, where at times there seems to be no foreseeable future? We experience the war through Mohamed’s eyes as he comes of age among broken bodies, terrified families, and the constant risk of sudden death. In response to the dark chaos of war, Mohamed learns to rely on his captain and crew-mates, who in turn support Mohamed in making a film that expresses both the trauma and hope of the too-often invisible people of Gaza.
