In a nursing home for seafarers in Camogli, a crew of retired sailors waits the last disembarkation. During this standstill, an almost centenary submariner plays the lottery, dreaming of winning a trip on a cruise ship to dance tango with a wonderful woman, an old diver wanders around the corridors reciting his poems aloud, a motorman on African banana boats fights against the coldness of the air conditioning, a captain of merchant ships search, looking at the stars, the route for his ship and a nostalgic boatswain swears running after the looming ships with his binoculars. All this happens while the ship is still at anchor, unwavering.

Palestinian refugees have been living in Syria since they had been forced to flee Palestine in 1948. As the Syrian crisis intensifies, they alongside the Syrians have been affected by the war. Their story, however, is more complex. By fleeing Syria and seeking refuge in Lebanon they are becoming a special category of refugees: they are refugees twice over. As Palestinians they are not entirely welcome in Lebanon. As refugees, their travel documents are not recognized. As Palestinians, this is the second time they lose everything and find themselves once more homeless and stateless. This documentary film tells part of the story of those twice-over refugees. A story where memories were awakened between one exodus and the other, and where loss invades all things striking the very self. A story where the causes and consequences are known, but not the closure. A story where lives are continuously being rebuilt and improvised awaiting the return.

After decades of silence, survivors and relatives of the victims of a mass atrocity establish a People’s Court. They will testify against a crime carried out by the Iranian regime, a crime that has been kept secret from the public for more than 25 years. Those responsible for these crimes now hold high government office in Iran. Their secret would be safe, if it was not for the efforts of some survivors. In 2013 an international tribunal, the Iran Tribunal, is convened in The Hague Court of Justice. Now is their chance to put Iran on trial for their crimes against humanity. This is a film about people who refuse to be silenced, people who fight for the right to tell their story in court.
