Loosely based on a tragic incident in the Middle East, as well as a follow-up notorious round of court battle in Paris, France. On September 30, 2000, France 2 TV broadcast footage of a shootout in Gaza, zooming in on a Palestinian father and his 12-year-old son taking cover behind a concrete drum. According to the report, filmed by a Palestinian reporter for the state-run French network, the boy, Mohammed al Dura, was gunned down by the Israeli forces . . . but was he really . . . ? What you hear from the media is not always the truth, and too often the media become the NEWS. . . .
