The story is set in the West Bank, part of the
occupied Palestinian territories. Since the
foundation of the state of Israel in 1948 there
has been conflict between the Israelis and the
Palestinians over ownership of land. Hundreds
of thousands of Palestinians were displaced in
the fighting of 1948. Since 1967 the Israelis have
occupied the West Bank and have built many
settlements in the occupied territory which are
deemed to be illegal under international law. It is in
the shadow of one of these settlements that Said
and his family live.
