In 2007, the urban artist Banksy and his team arrived in the occupied Palestinian territories to turn the walls into a giant artistic canvas. One of their works incurred the wrath of the local population. With the help of the community, Walid, a taxi driver, cut out the offending piece of wall and decided to sell it on Ebay to the highest bidder. The film follows the journey of this block of cement, from the streets of Bethlehem to the exhibitions of Western art collectors.
