In 2010, global activists launched the Freedom Flotilla, a convoy of humanitarian ships, to highlight the suffering of Palestinians in illegally-blockaded Gaza, and break this blockade.

This historic event transformed into a battle for the hearts & minds of the world.

Shot from aboard the flotilla, directed & narrated by one of its survivors & following up on media coverage, the film reveals the attack, and how the dead activists and their comrades defending the vessels were portrayed.

These claims are juxtaposed with the survivors’ statements, including some never-before-seen footage from aboard the vessels.
