CNN video exclusive: Escaping Gaza through parkour



CNN’s Nic Robertson meets Gaza’s youthful Parkour team. Dressed in distinctive yellow t-shirts the teenagers engage in death-defying acrobatics, launching themselves into spins and backflips from the wreckage of the 2014 war.
 
All 12 of them are committed to nothing more than the feeling of freedom in flight — however brief — and the hope that this sport could catapult them beyond Gaza's borders to a better life.
 
The team was spotted by the popular Middle East TV show "Arabs Got Talent," which might just have the pull to make their dreams come true and get them out of Gaza — if they can show they've got real talent.
