The Soviets kept East Berlin under their thumb for 26 years, but in the end they had to yield to the desires of the people who had lived there for generations, even for centuries, and the Wall finally did come down. Do the people always succeed? And, if eventually they do, what about all those who suffer and die along the way? What about the people whose homes are destroyed, whose families are broken, who are sacrificed to the will of the strong? Questions. The same questions that Delphine asked again and again as she tried to understand what was happening in Palestine, Israel, and throughout the Middle East. What were the answers? What are the answers?
