The film title quotes the former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. In nine formally very different chapters, the film portrays the Palestinian refugee camp Nabatieh in southern Lebanon: the camp inhabitants' attachment to the liberation struggle, the anti-imperialist context and the destruction of Nabatieh by Israeli air raids in May 1974. Director Mustafa Abu Ali was one of the founding fathers of the PLO film organization. Irit Neidhardt
