Forcibly removed from the ancient village of Ein Hod when Israel is formed, the Abulhejas are moved into the Jenin refugee camp. Exiled from his beloved olive groves, the patriarch languishes. His eldest son fathers a family but falls victim to an Israeli bullet. Kidnapped twin brothers, one raised Jewish, the other a resistance fighter. This is a Palestinian story, told as never before, through four generations of a single family.
