The Idol

Some dreams are worth living for ...
  • It’s just a jump to the right ...

Set in Gaza, which is synonymous to so many with conflict, destruction and despair but to a young boy and his sister, Gaza is their home and their playground. It’s where they, along with their best friends, play music, football and dare to dream big. Their band might play on second hand, beaten up instruments but their ambitions are sky-high. For them, nothing less than playing in the world famous Cairo Opera Hall will do. It might take them a lifetime to get there but, as the boy will find out, some dreams are worth living for. In Arabic and Spanish with English subtitles.
