Summary/Review: Jordan, 1967. The world is alive with change: brimming with reawakened energy, new styles, music and an infectious sense of hope. In Jordan, a different kind of change is underway as tens of thousands of refugees pour across the border from Palestine. Having been separated from his father in the chaos of war, Tarek, and his mother Ghaydaa, are amongst this latest wave of refugees. Placed in temporary refugee camps made up of tents and prefab houses until they would be able to return, they wait, like the generation before them who arrived in 1948. With difficulties adjusting to life in Harir camp and a longing to be reunited with his father, Tarek searches for a way out, and discovers a new hope emerging with the times. Winner of the Netpac Award and at the **Berlin International Film Festival**. Official Selection at the **Toronto International Film Festival**. *"A soft-centered child's-eye view of alienation, toughened by fine acting and Hélène Louvart's full-bodied photography."* - Jeannette Catsoulis, ***New York Times***
