    • Synopsis
    • After the obliteration of their villages and their expulsion from Israel in 1948, the Palestinians have always dreamt of returning to their native homeland. 60 years later, they remain refugees in South Lebanon while their former territory is occupied by today’s génération of Young Israelis who also believe that this land is their home.
      Director Nabil Ayouch, whose untraditional Arab-Jewish background echoes the two-sided Israelian-Palestine conflict, digs deeper in to the complex situation still being debated to this day. Through personal accounts and interviews conducted from both sides of the border, the Israelis and Palestinians – both young and old- share their memories, their history, and their thoughts on whether or not they will find a way to better the future for both nations.
