In the summer of 2019, Mahdi Fleifel went back to the Ain el-Helweh refugee camp in Lebanon to visit his friend Reda, who was also the subject of his previous film, A Man Returned. When Mahdi arrives, thousands of Palestinians have just taken to the streets to protest against discriminatory measures by the Lebanese government. A sociological meditation on the different ‘exits’ young Palestinians choose in order to cope with life in the refugee camps.
