Miral | 2011
In 1978, at the age of 7, Miral's father sends her to the Dar Al-Tifel Institute, an orphan home, following her mother's death. Brought up safely inside the Institute's walls, she is naïve to the troubles that surround her. In 1988, at the age of 17, she is assigned to teach at a refugee camp where she is awakened to the reality of the Palestinian refugees. When she falls for Hani, a political activist, she finds herself torn between the First Intifada of her people and the belief that education is the road to peace.
