In September 2016, four Palestinian children from the Aida refugee camp, on the outskirts of Bethlehem in the West Bank, were arrested by Israeli security forces. They were taken from their homes to a police interrogation facility in the middle of the night, on charges of throwing stones at IDF soldiers. . . After many hours of interrogations, under physical and mental duress, and weeks of court hearings, their lawyers closed plea deals and the 4 of them were sentenced to an 8-month prison term at Ofer Military Prison.

The film allows a one-time glimpse of video materials from the four children's interrogations. Through the interrogations, the personal story of the children and their friendship is revealed, as well as the story of the refugee camp from which they come and the story of the Palestinian people struggling for independence.
Through the children's stories, the film presents a broad picture of the method behind the arrests of minors in the West bank.
