The teachers and students of two Palestinian schools get the chance to travel beyond the checkpoints that surround Nablus.
Until now, like thousands of other paperless Palestinians, travel has been impossible for Shifa al-Khatib, a science teacher at the girls' school. This lack of identity papers means she has not seen her family in Jordan for ten years.
When at last she gets the necessary papers, she undergoes a long and very emotional journey as she is finally reunited with her family.
Meanwhile, back in Nablus, the lower school students' eagerly awaited exam results determine whether they will go up to the next grade, or have to repeat the year.
This series has been filmed exclusively from one perspective. You might be interested in two other programmes, Little Peace of Mine and Inspirations - Oasis of Peace, that explore how education is being used to build bridges between the Israelis and Palestinians.
