Three generations in one Palestinian family in a tale of daily survival, hope and longing for the past and for a better future. The grandfather was forced to migrate from Jaffa in 1948 but still dreams of returning to his homeland. His son entangles in the day to day demands of sustaining a family in Gaza's chaotic reality; finally, the grandson concept of heaven is anywhere in the world but Gaza. Conflicts within the family reveal a complex and emotional depiction of the Palestinian faith in today's tragic circumstances could be drawn.
