The film screening will be followed by a discussion with film director Ramzi Maqdisi.

Seven disabled Palestinians discuss the challenges of life in Gaza and the Occupied West Bank. Around 113,000 people in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza live with disabilities. Over 33 percent of schoolgoers with disabilities drop out of school. In this film, we meet seven Palestinians aged between seven and 28 with different disabilities. Most were born with them; one was injured in Israeli attacks on Gaza. They all have a positive attitude and a strong desire to overcome their physical weaknesses and realize their dreams.
