Synopsis

When 18-year-old Joseph Silbers reports for mandatory service in the Israeli military, blood testing reveals he is not the biological son of Alon, an Israeli Army commander, and Orith, a prominent physician, but of Said and Leila Al-Bezaaz, Palestinians who live in the West Bank. As newborns, the two families' sons were switched in the hospital, with the Silbers' true son, Yacine, growing up in Palestine with the Al-Bezaaz family. The revelation turns the lives of the two families upside down, forcing them to reassess their identities, values, and beliefs.
