This work follows two connected murder cases that took place in Israel and Palestine in 2014. Both the initial murder and the subsequent reprisal were violent, senseless acts committed mostly by teenagers and on teenage victims.


The video traces the route of Muhammad Abu Khdeir on the night he was murdered, from the place at which he was kidnapped to the site where he was burned to death alive.


It comprises 1,400 photographic stills, each individually edited, and a soundtrack composed of found footage.
