“My father used to say, nearly everything in the world is made in China; except courage, this is made in Palestine.”
Having been accused of rioting, Ali awaits his fate in an Israeli interrogation room. But when an old lover steps in to question him, the two are forced to confront their past and find themselves torn between bitter loyalties.
A harrowing Palestinian-Israeli love story set against the backdrop of the construction of the West Bank wall. A story of love, occupation, sacrifice, and redemption, that looks unflinchingly at the loss of innocence in war, the longing for lost homelands, and the political forces that shape our lives.
