Beyond the politics of land and people, cultural heritage and the use of archaeology is a main point of connection in the Arab-Israeli conflict, often used to justify political action and settlement.

This film looks at what happened to countless cultural artefacts taken from Palestinian sites and examines how the question of who owns cultural heritage has become a pressing issue between Arabs and Israelis.
