Haifa, nicknamed after the city of his love, walks through Gaza in a tattered uniform, laughing like a fool. All there is in his mind is returning to the city which he bears the name. His wife hangs hope for on imminent release of their eldest son from jail. Their youngest son is cynical and rebellious. Their twelve-year-old daughter is romancing the future and wants to find out what's in it for her. The different stories are interwoven into a very timely insight into the current Palestinian mind.
