For the past eight years Muhi, a young boy from Gaza, has been trapped in an Israeli hospital.
Muhi, a young boy from Gaza, has been trapped in an Israeli hospital for over eight years. Rushed there in his infancy with a life-threatening immune disorder, he and his doting grandfather, Abu Naim, are caught in an immigration limbo and only permitted to reside within the constraints of the hospital walls. Made by two filmmakers from Jerusalem, this documentary lays out the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in human terms, documenting the impact these paradoxical circumstances have on individual lives.
“A beautiful, haunting film about a man and a child who find themselves sheltered and also trapped in an absurd, extraterritorial corridor between Israel and Palestine, at war with each other...This story challenges the notion of enemies and shows ordinary human beings trying to be human in a world that has betrayed humanity.” —Sari Bashi, Israel/Palestine Advocacy Director, Human Rights Watch
