During the 1980s Stefanie Landgraf and Johannes Gulde short several docfilms about the Palestinians in refugee camps. Today, almost 30 years later, Yasmin, the daughter of the author, and the Hip-Hop-artist Enz take a trip to Lebanon and the West Bank with clips from the “old” films in their laptop. They contact participating people from the past as well as the young generation. How do they feel about their homeland Palestine today? Yasmin and Enz experience the Palestinian Hip-Hop-scene a creative way of resistance against occupation – instead of guns – words, music and theatre.
