Three Australians, Dr Peter Slezak, Rand Darwish and Lee Rhiannon, traveled to Palestine in mid 2023, to conduct interviews and investigate Israel's accelerating colonization of Palestinian land.

This documentary takes us to the heart of the 80 year struggle for Palestine's very survival in the face of the unrelenting, violent settler-colonial project, aimed at ending centuries of Palestinian habitation, culture and heritage.

Survivors of the 1947 / 48 Al Nakba along with Palestinian and Jewish activists, share their experiences and insights of living under Israeli military occupation and apartheid laws. It includes stunning footage and critical interviews with leading Palestinian resistance figures - including Hanan Ashrawi, former education minister of the Palestinian National Authority (PNO); and Jeff Halper, Israeli academic and anti-demolition activist and co-founder of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.
