    • Synopsis
    • David, a young idealist American Jew, joins the Israeli army and finds himself shooting a Palestinian girl. He is committed to a mental institution that sits on top of the ruins of a Palestinian village. The ghosts of the murdered villagers try to communicate with David through a Holocaust survivor who is a patient in the mental hospital. David’s father, a Holocaust survivor as well, tries to rescue his son by bringing him to New York, where David treats himself with an anti-trauma drug and tries to live a normal life. There, David falls in love with Lila, a young Palestinian-American mother. Amal, her daughter, looks like the girl who David killed. Will David escape his trauma by drawing his own destiny?
