Between the settlements and the wall the here men lack air and space. Like all the children from this camp, Tamer dreams of liberating his country and takes his cues from the Intifada generation. Former resistance fighter, Nader tries to protect his son from the dangers of life under Israeli occupation but he also wants to help him fulfil his dream of seeing the ocean. Situated on the other side of the wall, the Mediterranean Sea is almost inaccessible to Palestinians and although it is only 40 km from the camp special permission is necessary to reach it. However Nader is doing everything he can to accomplish an escape beyond the wall to a place where the gentle lapping of the waves will make the occupation but a distant memory.
