Synopsis: The world is alive with change in 1967 Jordan, brimming with a renaissance of energy, vibrant styles, music and an infectious sense of hope. A different kind of change is palpable as tens of thousands of refugees pour in across the border from Palestine. Having been separated from his father in the clutches of war, Tarek, 11, and his mother, Ghaydaa, are amongst the latest wave of refugees.
