    Al Amari was established after their inhabitants were expelled from their original homes with the promise that the situation is just for a week. This “provisional” has become permanent and has lasted for 70 years. The past has transformed into everyday reality and appears in any aspects of the camp environment. Protagonists Hannan, Jaafar and Shams are portrayed via director´s personal interaction with them within her camp´s sojourn. They all have their own rituals how to get out from the camp for a moment and how to deal with their “refugee” identity, also written in their ID´s.
