The true story of a rag-tag team of international peace activists aboard two fishing boats, who decided to take on the might of the Israeli military and break the siege of Gaza. Refusing to be intimidated, only one thing could stop them, and that was themselves.
In February 1988, the Palestine Liberation Organization attempted to sail a boat to Gaza but it was blown up in Larnaka harbour, Cyrpus, by the Israeli Mossad. This is the story of a second attempt in August 2008 by the Free Gaza Movement. Some forty campaigners from twelve different countries, along with internationally renowned journalist Yvonne Ridley, took two old fishing boats to break the siege of Gaza.
This historic attempt to sail the first boats into Gaza in more than 40 years will take you on a rollercoaster of emotion, tears, high drama, and courage.
