Synopsis
Muhi, a brave and spirited Palestinian boy, has lived in an Israeli hospital for seven years. With a rare disease and life threatening outbreaks that left both his arms and legs amputated, he cannot return to his family in Gaza where the shattered healthcare system is unable to treat his condition. Watched over by his grandfather Abu Naim and a volunteer Israeli humanitarian Buma Inbar, Muhi has just begun to understand the rules and conflict that divide his world. His updated visa status “Generally Temporary” strikes a particularly poignant note.
