Beirut, Lebanon, in 1982 is a dangerous place for anyone, not least a young Palestinian refugee like Fahed. He skips school to sell gum and cigarettes on the city’s streets, defying the wishes of his father and much to the annoyance of his Lebanese rivals who attempt to drive Fahed and his friends back to their camp. Making matters worse, Lebanon is in the midst of a savage civil war between its numerous political and religious factions and on the verge of being invaded by its southern neighbor, Israel, which is determined to stop PLO rocket attacks coming over the border. Meanwhile, ordinary Palestinians like Fahed, his father and grandfather exist in the refugee camps.
