This three-channel video follows two connected murder cases that took place in Israel and Palestine in 2014: the murder of the three Jewish teens, Gilad Sha'er, Naftali Frenkel, and Eyal Yifrah, and the murder of the Palestinian teenager, Mohammed Abu Khdeir. Both the initial murder and the subsequent reprisal were violent, senseless acts committed mostly by teenagers and on teenage victims.

 

The video comprising 1,400 still photographs, each edited separately, traces the route of Abu Khdeir on the night of his murder, from the place where he was abducted to the site he was burned to death. The soundtrack is composed from police tapes of the murder of the three Jewish boys.
