No one in the Gaza can count the effects of the continued closure of the gate of their large prison, known as the crossing. The crossing is not the gate but the largest prison in the world that holds more than 2 million Palestinians in Gaza. The film is an invitation to see the director’s experience and that of the passengers at the gate of the crossing, and to listen to the stories during his travels over the past years.
