“With chubby cheeks, a goofy smile, and an inquisitive manner, the film’s namesake brings joy to Muhi.” – Zach Rausnitz, Washington City Paper



For the past seven years Muhi, a brave and spirited Palestinian boy has been living in an Israeli hospital, unable to return to his home in Gaza. Caught between two worlds and two peoples, Muhi is raised in paradoxical circumstances that transcend identity, religion and the conflict that divides his world. His time at the hospital is running out and Muhi now faces the most critical choices of his life.
