Through a series of young survivors’ recollections, Samouni Road conveys a deep, multifaceted portrait of a family before, during and after tragic event affected a farming community outside of Gaza City.
In the rural outskirts of Gaza City, a small community of farmers in the Samouni extended family, is about to celebrate a wedding.

The neighbourhood where they live is being rebuilt. As they replant trees and plough fields, they face their most difficult task; piecing together their own memory.
