Summary In the Gaza Strip, growing up on land owned by his family for centuries, fourteen-year-old Yousef is preoccupied by video games, school pranks, and meeting his father's impossible high standards. Everything changes when the second Intifada erupts and soldiers occupy the family home, turning it into a virtual prison. Over time, Yosef learns the rules of his new life in captivity - but he can't anticipate that an Israeli bullet is about too transform his future in an instant.
