Synopsis

Chloe is a young Canadian doctor who works in a West Bank refugee camp where she monitors the pregnancies of young Palestinian patients, under the supervision of Michaël, a French obstetrician.
Between checkpoints and stray bullets, Chloe learns about war, and those who bear its burden: Rand, pregnant with her first child; her eldest brother Faysal, a passionate member of the resistance with whom Chloe falls in love; their younger brother Safi, who dreams of leaving Palestine, their mother Soraïda; and Ava, the young Israeli soldier who lives upstairs from Chloe in Jerusalem. Torn between the two sides of the conflict, wrapped up in the absurdity of the two-sided
struggle, Chloe tries as best she can to build bridges… until the conflict draws her into its cycle of violence and she internalizes the conflict.
