Sheherazade's tales of the Arabian Nights were a ploy to stave off her execution. So too, Khalil, a Palestinian feddayin turned 'revolutionary doctor' keeps Younès, a resistance hero, alive by rivers of talk, in the Beiruti camp of Shatila. Khalil's monologue covers 50 years of Palestinian history, from the birth of the State of Israel and the exodus of 1948 down to the Oslo peace agreements.
