Film (Short, Drama and History) Writer During the 1948 war in Palestine and just one day after a massacre which shocked the world, an Old man encounters a young man and a boy running for their lives. The three Palestinians share the common interest of leaving their homeland for a safer place. Unknown what lies ahead, their journey is sidetracked from the start by the enemy who show up this beautiful Spring day. They flee, fearing that if caught, they will be unquestionably killed. They take shelter in an abandoned well; fairy-tailed to possess magical powers and while hiding, they encounter a traumatic incident intermixing strangely with the breath-taking nature surrounding them. They suffer a humiliation so complex their outlook on life is changed forever. Written by Anonymous
