At the age of 13, Mohammad was evicted, along with his family, from their home in the East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah by Israeli settlers seeking to create a permanent Jewish presence in the area.
Reacting at first with deep anger towards all Israelis, Mohammad was soon exposed to a different part of Israeli society as Israelis from a variety of backgrounds began to arrive in the neighbourhood to support the residents in their struggle to save their homes.
This film follows Mohammad's coming of age over two years of profound upheaval and change in his neighbourhood, and introduces us to key figures in his life, including Tzvi Benninga, a leading Israeli activist who grew up in West Jerusalem and now plays a key part in organising the weekly protests in Sheikh Jarrah.
We also see the perspective of Mohmmad's grandmother, Rifka al-Kurd, who led her family's defiant response to the eviction and is sceptical of the sincerity of the Israeli protestors.
And we hear from the Israeli settlers who displaced Mohammad's family in the name of Jewish control of the land.
Through the prism of a Palestinian boy growing up in East Jerusalem, we see the issue of rights, homes and hope unfold.
