NJ PREMIERE
NARRATIVE
Director:
Ram Loevy
2019 • 96 minutes • Israel / Arabic, English, Hebrew

Three orphaned children from the West Bank are smuggled into Israel and brought to distant relatives George and Rita in Jaffa. Rita embraces them as her own, but George fears the repercussions if the Israeli authorities discover they are sheltering the young illegal aliens. Meanwhile, nearby, a British film director is making a movie about his parents’ love affair in 1947 when they served in the British army in Palestine. When the present-day reality meets the historical events that led to it, tragedy ensues.

This film is brought to you by Ellen and Donald Legow & Lonye and Stephen Rasch
