Notes:
Thousands of Palestinians work illegally as construction workers in Israel and its occupied territories. They construct luxury houses at daytime and go to sleep in tents and makeshift shacks at night. Ahmed and Muhammad perceive these abodes as their home, where they share their food and their fear of being caught by the police or the secret service restlessly searching for illegal workers. ¨We never think about the future¨ is their comment to the director, whose almost physically touching digital camera shows the rough reality of their lives.
