This powerful documentary tells the story Palestinian resistance to brutal oppression by following a Palestinian villager who films the struggle of the people in his village against the Israeli army on a series of cameras. Nodal points in the struggle and the film are marked by the Israeli army smashing each camera. The film begins with his first camera recording the birth of his son...Each of the five cameras tells its own story before it is destroyed.
