Jehad and Abdallah are Palestinian athletes brought up together in the Gaza Strip. In 2005, they founded the Gaza Parkour Team to offer the younger generations an alternative to the war. After managing to escape, today, Abdallah lives in an abandoned house in Italy as a political refugee. He has no job, and he can hardly manage to get by. Jehad is still trapped in the Strip. He takes care of his sick parents and leads the Team by himself in the terrible political situation of Gaza. They haven’t spoken to each other for years: Jehad has never forgiven Abdallah for leaving him behind. Despite his bad shape, in a desperate attempt to achieve his dream, Abdallah decides to participate in an international parkour competition. Jehad realizes he won’t be able to have any future in the Strip, so he decides to apply for a Visa and try to change his destiny. Their choices have torn their friendship apart, yet their destinies mirror one another. Now more than ever, they need to find out if there is a way leading to freedom for someone who, like them, was born in prison.
