Life at the Ain el-Helweh Palestinian refugee camp in southern Lebanon is examined by filmmaker Mahdi Fleifel, who grew up there.

Fleifel uses footage shot over 20 years by various members of his family; shares memories; and details the precarious state the camp's residents still find themselves in, since Lebanon views them—even those born there—as foreigners.
