Jordan, 1967. The world is alive with change: brimming with reawakened energy, new styles, music, and infectious hope. In Jordan, a different kind of change is underway as tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees pour across the border in the wake of the 1967 war. Having been separated from his father in the chaos of war, Tarek, 11, and his mother Ghaydaa are amongst them. Placed in “temporary” refugee camps, they wait, like the generation before them who arrived in 1948.
