for BBC/TVE/One World Group of Broadcasters

Shot in the final, turbulent days of the Israeli occupation of the Gaza Strip, Michel Khleifi's film tells the tale of a magical love story between two adolescents in a time of war and danger.

Yusef, a 12-year-old refugee growing up in the Intifada, lives with his mother and 15-year-old sister. His brother is a fugitive; his father has been in prison for the last nine years. But Yusef has a world of his own. He loves birds and drifts into the wilderness at every opportunity. One day he runs into Aida, a beautiful, wild girl his own age. He becomes completely infatuated with her, and tells her he wants to marry her when they grow up. But she replies that only the suitor who finds the three jewels, lost in Latin America, from her grandmother's necklace can win her hand. And so begin his attempts to reach Latin America...
