'When I Saw You' from the director of 'Wajib' is a heartfelt and moving film, suffused with a distinct sense of revolutionary time and place.
1967. The world is alive and ripe with possibility - new music, style, hope. But in Jordan, thousands of refugees from Palestine are held waiting for their right to return to their homeland. Amidst this, a young boy yearns to be reunited with his father. Restlessly cooped up in the refugee camp, he secretly sets out on his own, and along the way, attaches himself to a group of young freedom fighters who take him under their wing.
