    • Synopsis
    • Hebron is a holy place for Jews, Muslims and Christians. In its oldest neighborhood can be found a small Jewish settler enclave surrounded by 120,000 Palestinians. On the surrounding rooftops is a large Israeli military force, under specific orders to protect Hebron’s 800 settlers. Over a period of three years the filmmaker lived amongst these settlers, her goal to portrait the daily lives of these Jewish families, and their constant conflict with Hebron’s ‘other’ residents.
