Winner Best Screenplay Jerusalem Film Festival, 2013.

A compelling family drama about identity in a country with many faces.

After being estranged from his Druze village and family for 17 years, Yoseph returns with his two Israeli, teenage children. His marriage to a Jewish Israeli woman has just ended and he plans to settle down there. His arrival causes friction inside the closed, conservative Druze community and also with his mother Afifa, who accepts him and his children as part of her family again. Amongst the politics and difficulties of integration, the children, who only know life inside Jewish Israel, begin to connect with their father’s culture. And despite the tensions, Semadar, Yoseph's daughter, unexpectedly finds love.
