About the Film
In 1948 hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced to leave their homes because of the Nakba - the Catastrophe - the founding of Israel. Many became refugees in neighboring Lebanon. Most Palestinians retain the hope of retuning home one day. But more than seven decades later the refugee camps have become part of the landscape of Lebanon. Over a quarter of a million Palestinians still live in the twelve UN-registered refugee camps and the 42 so called “gatherings” across Lebanon. Their rights to work and owne property are limited by Lebanese law. This is the story of their predicament from their perspective.
