This epic voyage of identity and self-discovery in the first and second Palestinian intifadas (uprisings) follows Ahmed’s journey from the West Bank to political exile in Norway and back again, and his transformation from armed resistance fighter to established artist.

Based on Ahmed Tobasi’s own extraordinary coming of age story.

Part of this year's Shubbak Festival: A Window on Contemporary Arab Culture

“A charming and compelling coming-of-age story that finds joy and redemption amid conflict.”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“Raw and sharply comic... Remarkable personal voyage of transformation... Pretty rough and ready.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Strikingly matter-of-fact... Tobasi's open-faced, open-hearted delivery overflows with commitment.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)
