In 2013, a statue of Apollo is found in the waters off Gaza, only to vanish under mysterious circumstances. Before long, rumours swirl around the much-coveted treasure. This investigative documentary immerses the viewer in the little-known everyday realities of a land where life goes on defiantly despite a protracted regional conflict. Bringing a hint of light to the Gaza sky, the statue and its inspiring history restore a measure of dignity to an entire people.
