Muhi_Poster_Small.jpg

Muhi - Generally Temporary chronicles Muhi (Muhammad), a brave, funny and resilient Palestinian child from Gaza and his devoted Muslim grandfather Abu Naim who for the past 7 years have been living in an Israeli hospital. Muhi, caught between two homes and two peoples, is unable to return to Gaza to his mother in who loves him fiercely. He is saved and raised by his people's enemy in paradoxical circumstances that transcend identity, religion and the conflict that divides his world.
