In 2003, Stefan Markworth visited Lebanon for the first time, coming by a series of coincidences to stay in the Burj elBarajneh Palestinian refugee camp. The film he made there is a personal account both of his own experience as an Australian traveller coming to terms with the reality of the refugee camp existing beside apparently affluent modern Beirut, and of the remarkable young people he met there. With striking candour and humour, the young men and women of the camp speak of their dreams, their fears and their frustrations as they face a future framed by compounded uncertainties and restrictions. The film is an intimate account of both the filmmaker's experiences and those of his subjects and friends.
