The troubled past of Israel's birth as a nation and the devastating consequences it has had in the region frequently make headlines around the world and fill our screens with images of political turmoil.

But the reality of what six decades of displacement has meant for the day to day lives of those who have lived there rarely makes the news.

Al Jazeera's news editor, Awad Joumaa went on a journey spanning two continents and three countries to bring that reality to life.

In his moving and deeply personal film Journey Home, Awad took his father from Denmark back to the place he was born, but has never known.
