'Ours is a Country of Words' takes place in Shatila, a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, that was built in 1948. The story starts at an unknown moment in the future, when the dream of the Palestinian refugees to go back to Palestine becomes reality. A dream that is far removed from their daily life in the camps.
