The melancholy modern life of a Palestinian family whose three generations, trapped by personal affairs, yearn to break free. In Nazareth, an old couple responds wearily to their daily routine. Across the border, their daughter is about to give birth while taking care of her senile grandmother. And their son, who wishes to remain an eternal bachelor, is battling his girlfriend. Maha Haj’s droll debut etches a family portrait of simmering tensions and dissension, against the backdrop of Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
