This inspiring and moving real life story follows the progress of a bright and loveable child from Gaza as he bounds through the hallways of an Israeli hospital. Seven years after he was rushed as an infant to hospital with a life threatening infection, he is learning to live with the prostheses that replaced his amputated limbs. Showing extraordinary courage and adaptability that defy the concrete and metaphoric walls both Israeli and Palestinian authorities have built, Muhi offers a rare glimpse of hope.
