Children

A film by Ada Ushpiz

Synopsis

Meet the third generation of the occupation, they’re feisty and political, but also childish (or teen-terrible) and funky. Pawns in a life they did not choose, forced to become adults before their time, hundreds are in prison with very little judicial support. Children opens a door into Palestinian families whose children are in the forefront of the resistance in an attempt to protect their freedom.
