Riccardo plans on doing something that no one else has ever dared to do before: the Italian medical student wants to go to Gaza on an Erasmus exchange. His goal is to become a war surgeon. So, he leaves his family, friends and fellow students behind and trades his peaceful life at university for life in Gaza – an area that has been shaped by rocket attacks between Israelis and Palestinians for decades. Right away, he struggles with feelings of being a stranger, panic attacks and the desire to leave. But he also meets people who become his friends, with whom he waits for the missiles to hit again and again. Something completely surreal and almost unbearable for him is part of everyday life for his friends. While Ricardo can flee back to safety at any time, his friends are not allowed to leave Gaza.
