    • Synopsis
    • Arabani is a slang word that combines Hebrew and Arabic. Yoseph is a Druze who returns to his native village after having been estranged from it for 17 years. He arrives with his son and daughter, whose Jewish mother he has just divorced, and plans to settle down in this small Druze village. That decision leads to friction within the closed, conservative Druze community and also with his mother Afifa, who accepts him and his children as part of her family. The friction stems from the fact that to be a real Druze, both parents must be Druze. Despite the problems and difficulties, Smadar, Yoseph's daughter, unexpectedly finds love.
