Tamer, a Palestinian student, does not meddle in politics; at the same time, the memory of his uncle, an activist physically shattered by imprisonment, weighs heavily on his mind. As soon as he appears, he is attracted by a new classmate, the beautiful, spontaneous and politically committed Maysaa’ ; to impress him, Tamer takes his buddies in the “Operation: Flag” of Maysaa. This act of resistance aims to replace the Israeli school flag with the Palestinian flag on Israeli Independence Day, which is a day of mourning for the Palestinians when they commemorate the “Nakba” - the disaster. Under the influence of Mayssa’, Tamer’s political consciousness awakens and he decides to participate in his very first demonstration. The director Firas Khoury films with conviction and drive their transition to adulthood in a form of politicization and taking the position of citizens in becoming facing a state mechanism (colonizer) aimed at forgetting history, or worse to change it through education.
