Movie synopsis: A Palestinian widow, living on the West Bank of Jordan, looks after an inherited lemon tree orchard. Her peaceful life suddenly changes when the Israeli Minister of Defence and family moves into the neighbourhood. As a security measure, he orders to cut the trees down, which the desperate widow wants to prevent in any way possible. The film is based on a true story, and actress Hiam Abbass received several international awards for her role, including the annual award of the Israeli Film Academy. With a tinge of mysticism, the director emphatically observes the mutual struggle and unexpected allies in this turbulent region.
