Antar spurs his brother to get up, in the afternoon he will record his first disk. Noor must appear in front of the television cameras. The shots of the rifles remind him that Jabber lives in the buffer zone that separates Gaza from Israel. As in a dream, the boys of the Parkour Team pirouette in a cemetery. Life in the strip winds up until night.
