1948, Cairo, Egypt. Hassanin, a young Egyptian filmmaker travels with a Moslem Brotherhood platoon to the holy land. The mission: help Palestinian villagers who have been evicted from their lands.
The platoon is stationed on a hill overlooking an Israeli kibbutz. There is the occasional act of belligerency. But mostly there is the sheer exuberance of youth in evidence on both sides. Hassanin’s camera documents this quirky realty until an image of victory is ordered.
