It includes testimonies from those who lived through this period and from scholars on both sides of the ongoing conflict, Israeli and Palestinian, such as Benny Morris, Ilan Pappe and Rashid Khalidi. It was listed as one of the five best films of 2018 in the Sydney Morning Herald and has been shown at festivals all over the world.
