A film shot in the summer of 2002 in Bourj Al Barajneh, a Palestinian refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon.

The camp was established by the UN as a temporary solution to the Palestinian refugee crisis resulting from the creation of the state of Israel. 54 years and 4 generations later, the 20,000 people of Bourj Al Barajneh are still refugees – with little prospect of returning to Palestine, emigrating elsewhere or assimilating into Lebanese society, where they have no civil rights and are legally prohibited from 73 jobs.
