In this semi-autobiographical film based on his father's diaries and his mother's letters, director Elia Suleiman traces the evolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict through a focus on the everyday life of Israeli Arabs. From the creation of Israel to the near-present day, Suleiman weaves together fractured vignettes of a family adapting to political changes that transform their family bonds and create new identities.
