Drawing on both historical and current struggles for Palestinians under siege, occupation and forced displacement, including the Great March of Return in Gaza, the film provides a stirring indictment of Israels settler project as well as that of the cable networks deliberate spin to shield Israel from accountability. As the films title indicates, Peck divides the film into five themes: the expulsion of Palestinians during the Nakba, when 800,000 Palestinians were forced from their homeland in 1947-1948; Israels disproportionate violence against Palestinians; Israels continued expansion of illegal settlement colonies; the US financial support of Israel; and whats behind the smear campaigns to label criticism of Israels policies as anti-Semitism.
