An homage to the Gaza Strip, this film explores the subject of the eternal return. A journey following one man through five different landscapes marks the end as the beginning, forgetting as the way forward, and the failure of civilisation. Starting from Gaza, the film moves on to explore other seemingly unconnected landscapes in the United States, France and Italy with the intention of linking the plight of the Palestinians to other peoples’ suffering throughout modern history.
