It’s a documentary shot right after the end of the Israeli military offensive in Gaza in 2009. Without analyzing the filmteam gives us impressions of daily life in Gaza, showing not only the ruins but the beautiful beach, drama classes for children and the reconstruction of  a roundabout destroyed by the bombs. Hope and grwoth blend with the sorrow of lost family members and and land cultivated for generations. Life is peristent like a dandelion growing through cracks in the  asphalt.
