Synopsis

Four decades after Israel's founding, director Victor Schonfeld compares the idealistic social and political goals of the nation-state's creators with the stark reality of violence and civil unrest during the 1980s. Secular and religious interests collide as individuals on both sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict struggle to establish peace and governmental stability. In particular, the film explores the detrimental effect of the conservative religious right on Palestinians and Israelis alike.
