With their mother dead and their father in prison, three children from the West Bank are smuggled into Israel to stay with George and Rita, distant relatives who live in Jaffa. Childless Rita embraces the children as her own, while George is wary of the potential ramifications if they are caught hiding illegal aliens. Nearby, a British director is filming an historical drama set in 1947 and invites George to play a role. The two stories intertwine, and tensions erupt. Acclaimed director Ram Loevy’s powerful and intelligent film is a pointed commentary on the roots—and future—of the Israeli Palestinian conflict.
