Chacun sa Palestine (My Palestine)

Sabrina, Rawad, Said and other young Palestinian refugees born in Lebanon enter the photographer's studio one at a time. The rules of the game are simple. Each one selects one photo background from among the different views of mythical cities: New York, Paris, Beirut and Jerusalem.

Each one then tells his story, his projects, and his own questioning. They all share a certain nostalgia for a land they do not - and perhaps will never - know:  Palestine.
