A statue of Apollo, god of the arts, beauty and divination, is found in Gaza's waters before disappearing under strange circumstances. Soon, the rumours swell around this coveted treasure amongst museum curators and collectors. In this intimate film, both an inquiry and a historical reflection, Nicolas Wadimoff immerses us in the unknown reality of a wounded territory where life nevertheless remains, dignified and rebellious.
