Richard Miron lived for seven weeks in the Jewish settlements in Gaza, sharing in the lives of the people who lived there.
He witnessed the final days of the settlements and the evacuation of the 8,000 Jewish people from the place they say was given to them by God but which the Palestinians say was taken from them by force.
The programme follows characters from three Jewish settler families: Celia, a British born midwife; Debi, a devout and passionate spokeswoman for the biggest settlement in Gaza; and Avi, a secular Israeli who came to live in Gaza 20 years ago.
Richard follows them through the disengagement process, records their confrontations with the army and later catches up with them on the other side of the green line as they begin building new lives beyond Gaza.
This unique documentary provides an insight into the crisis faced by the Jewish settlers and asks what is the future for their ideology which has been at the forefront of Israeli politics for many years.
