About the Film: Three children from the West Bank are smuggled to the Jaffa home of a Palestinian-Israeli couple, who disagree about how to respond to the children's arrival. George is afraid that hiding the children will endanger them, while Rita believes the children could give meaning to her life. Meanwhile, George is recruited to perform a small role in a foreign film being shot nearby, further complicating matters.
