This film gives an account of the Israeli invasion of Lebanon through meetings and interviews with common people and leading personalities from the south of the country. In a satirical twist, We Are All for the Fatherland, mixes footage of the war and its ravages with cut scenes of young children trying to sing the Lebanese national anthem amidst armed conflict, military strategies and speeches.
