A secular Palestinian filmmaker from the diaspora returns to the Galilee, after 20 years of absence and her parents’ death, to embrace the members of their Arab Christian community. She asks difficult questions on faith, erosion of identity, allegiance, citizenship and communal memory in 70 years of living under Zionism. Will she find solace for her mourning in her homeland?
