In 1975, at the age of fifteen, Palestinian artist Zuhdi Al Adaw is sentenced and confined in the high security prison of Askalan, Israel for fifteen years. With the help of his fellow prisoners and their families, he manages to stay alive by smuggling in colour crayons and smuggling out his allegorical artwork done on pillowcases, so it finds its way to the outside world.
