The Tower

Beirut, Lebanon, today. Wardi, an eleven year old Palestinian girl, lives with her family in the refugee camp where she was born. Her great-grandfather Sidi was one of the first people to settle in the camp after being chased from his home back in 1948. The day Sidi gives her the key to his old house back in Galilee, she fears he may have lost hope of someday going home. As she searches for Sidi's lost hope around the camp, she collects her family's testimonies across generations.
