August 2008, two small greek fishing boats broke the naval siege, illegally laid by the state of Israel on Gaza, for the first time after 41 years.
“Gaza We Are Coming” records the historic and risky journey of 44 activists from all over the world, who, by breaking the embargo, proved that history is often made by those that the wise and prudent determinists call ‘unreal’.
