In 2003 the Israeli government started building a Security Barrier between Israel and the Palestinian territories in the West Bank. But for various reasons, the Amer's home was completely surrounded and isolated, neither in Israel or Palestine. We used to be able to see our neighbours and have a normal lifeeven in paradise one cannot live without people. After appealing to human rights organisations, the Israeli army offers to open a private gate. Father, Hani is given a key but threatened if anyone else uses it, the house will be demolished. The familys deteriorating reality causes tensions to grow and youngest son Shadad starts to disappear from the house.
