The Apollo of Gaza

 

Synopsis

In 2013, an ancient statue of Apollo was found in the waters off Gaza - before disappearing under mysterious circumstances. Is it the work of forgers, or a gift from the gods to a Palestinian people desperately in need of hope? Soon the rumours start to swirl, while behind the scenes local and international players start jostling - some driven by historical preservation and others by purely commercial interests
