Sami and Mohammad are two Palestinian young men looking for ways to cope with a world of walls, checkpoints and unexpected arrests. They both decide to teach the youth in their communities the acrobatic sport of parkour and the art of storytelling through photography. Although these young men are separated by a wall, they are nevertheless united in leading the next generation towards freedom and self-determination. With defiant creativity, they prove that no matter how high the obstacles are, one can always climb.


Despite the noise and chaos in their refugee camp, two young Palestinians discover a creative way to record music in order to meet a competition deadline.
