    • Synopsis
    • Inspired by a true event. Eyes of a Thief begins at the height of the Palestinian
      Uprising in 2002 with Tareq, an enigmatic man bearing fresh wounds. Tended to
      by local nuns, who help him escape, he’s soon arrested by Israeli soldiers. Ten
      years later Tareq is released from prison and returns to his town, a place
      transformed by drastic changes and filled with secrets, to find his daughter Nur.
      As secrets are uncovered, light is shed on the stifling nature of contemporary
      Palestinian society, while revealing Tareq’s hidden past. The sense of moral
      certainty is replaced by questionable individual choices with no easy answers.
