    • Synopsis
    • The film deals with the Jewish occupation of the Palestinian territory in the West Bank. Despite the colonisation of Palestinian territory being illegal under international law, the settlements expand every day while the settlers walk around bearing arms and terrorising the local Palestinian community. These activities are ignored by the media, as are the daily non-violent actions, demonstrations and deeds of Palestinian civil society. What is going on behind the walls? Stones versus rifles is the only communication that happens. Is it still worth protesting or are the Palestinians only keeping fragments of their dignity?
