SYNOPSIS

Ana (Juliette Binoche) is reunited with her estranged Israeil stepbrother Uli (Liron Levo) when he travels to  France for the death of their father. She decides to return to Israel to search for the daughter she gave up at birth some 20 years ago. Crossing frontiers by car, train and boat, Ana and Uli end up in the turmoil and emotion of the military-enforced disengagement of Israeli settlers from Gaza in 2005 … From the director of FREE ZONE, KADOSH and KIPPUR.
