Synopsis

After the fall of Saddam Hussein, thousands of Palestinians residents in Iraq became refugees in a no man's land. The distant republic of Chile welcomed a group of them in La Calera, a small town where hundreds of Palestinians had already arrived a century ago, making this town their children’s home.

So the journey repeats itself as Basem, a young Palestinian who has just arrived with his wife and young daughter, faces his new country full of enthusiasm, ingenuity and hope. He longs for a home in this seductive, unknown world, thousands of miles from home.  In his new country, Basem finds his way as a baker and set up his own business. He hopes that his efforts, together with the support of the large community of Palestinian descendants will lead him to fulfill his dream of bringing his elderly parents to live together again.
