The struggle over land and security plays out in interactions between a Palestinian woman, Salma Zidane, owner of a lemon grove, and her neighbor, the Israeli Defense Minister. Zidane opposes the destruction of the grove, which is viewed as a security threat. The wife of the Minister opposes destroying the trees without ever interacting with Zidane. The film explores interpersonal relations, historical legacies, and governmental policies that both separate and unite individuals and their communities over scarce and cherished resources. In Arabic, English, and Hebrew with English subtitles.
