The effects of a curfew upon one extended-family during a single day are chronicled in this drama set in the Gaza Community. It begins as a normal day in Gaza. Children are playing. Radar plays with them. Suddenly the Israelis announce an open-ended curfew over the loud-speakers. Everyone quickly scurries to their homes. Radar lives with his mother, his ailing father, his brother and his wife and daughter, and his angry brother Akram. The women keep things running smoothly. They have no idea how long the curfew will last and are concerned about having enough food. Radar is sent out to get some. His mother wonders if she dares stepping outside to hang the laundry. Neighbors communicate with shutters, and by peering over walls. At one point a baby is born.
