The film revolves around Muhi, caught between two homes and two fighting peoples, who is treated and raised by his people's enemy, surrounded by love that transcends identity, religion and the conflict that divides his world. As an infant, he is rushed to an Israeli hospital, his rare genetic condition is not treatable in Gaza's crumbing healthcare system. According to security regulations, he is accompanied only by his grandfather and both are confined for years to the hospital grounds. Muhi is watched over by an Israeli and a Palestinian, both men lost sons to conflict and war, while his parents are marooned in Gaza, an hour drive away. Muhi doesn't know his father and rarely sees his mother. To save Muhi's life, doctors had to amputate his arms legs and sections of his intestines. Muhi must remain in Israel for the care that keeps him alive.
