Erasmus in Gaza is the coming-of-age story of Riccardo, a medical student who will be the first Erasmus exchange student ever in Gaza. Far away from his loved ones and his routine in Italy, he will be catapulted to the seminar halls of the Islamic University and the wards of a war hospital to discover the true nature of his calling as a surgeon. In crossing the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip, the biggest open-air prison in the world, Riccardo also crosses the boundary between adolescence and adulthood: a journey of personal struggle that will test whether or not he has the determination to pursue his dreams.
