Imagine that you have siblings but you can’t talk to them because you don’t speak the same language. Imagine that you have parents but you were raised without them. The film tells the extraordinary story of a Palestinian family which was dispersed by several turmoils that steer the last century as if the 20th century was summed up in the life of a single family: From the Spanish Civil War in which the father Najati Sidki fought against Franco to World War II, Nakba and Lebanese Civil War.
