The documentary follows the taxi-van driver Rajai who tries to live and survive in Jerusalem and Ramallah. We see the problems in the region through his eyes. Rajai is the guide in the labyrinth of war, occupation and resistance in a chaotic area. He leads us over detours and mountain dusty roads passed the roadblocks and bit by bit we get to know more about him and his thoughts. The passengers in the van, the places he gets to and the activities he explores besides driving a taxi conjure up a divers image of the situation in Palestine and of Rajai himself.
