Drawing on the diaries and archive material of her grandparents, Derek and Pamela Cooper, director Chloe Ruthven traces the history of foreigners working in Palestine, from volunteers helping in the refugee camps to professionals working in the multi-million dollar aid industry. The film explores the impact of the foreign aid boom on local communities and asks: to what extent has the West's concept of altruism become self-serving?
