What do you do when the only way to live is to leave? Jamila, a studious 17-year-old Palestinian girl growing up in a refugee camp in southern Lebanon, feverishly prepares for the university exam that is her only way out of the impoverished world she calls home. Urge for Going offers a variety of personalities and perspectives in this searing and funny family story.
