Synopsis: When his fourth son Gibreel is born in 2005, self-taught cameraman Emad Burnat, a Palestinian
villager, gets his first camera. At the same time, the people of his village begin to resist the
construction of a separation barrier that will consume their farmlands.

For the next year, Burnat films this non-violent struggle, lead by two of his best friends, while
simultaneously recording the growth of his son. Very soon, these events begin to affect Emad and
his family. Daily arrests, violent attacks, destruction, and loss of life scare his family as the
protesters are shot at and detained by police. As Emad documents these events, one camera after
another is smashed – and each camera becomes a chapter in his struggle.
