Riverdance is a theatrical show consisting mainly of traditional Irish music and dance. When you think of them, it is hard to imagine Riverdance having any connection with Palestine.

But the documentary follows John McColgan, the founder of Riverdance and a famous director. The documentary follows his journey through the West Bank and Gaza. He explores the impact of the ongoing conflict and military occupation on the people who live there.

The geography of Israel and Palestine has been bound to our mind since childhood. But few of us decide to take on a journey and explore the topic.

John took that journey, and he discussed with many people who live there. Some of them have lost their home, some of them have lost their family, and some have lost their land. All of that is result of the ongoing conflict that doesn’t look is ending any time soon.

McColgan also spent some time with peace activists, trying to gauge their mind and how are they trying to bring the conflict to an end.

The documentary was produced to mark the 50th anniversary of the military occupation of the West Bank.
