Mazen has just been released from an Israeli prison for setting fire to an Israeli settlement site, which could have demolished his village's all-important olive groves. His younger brother, Taher, has fallen in love with the beautiful Raeda--a love kept secret because, by tradition, his older brother must marry first. Raeda's father Muhamad, the patriarch of the groves, is dying. Having seen Mazen's sacrifice to save the olives as protection for the groves once he's gone, he pushes Raeda to marry Mazen. Raeda now finds herself torn between two worthy brothers, but only in love with one of them.
