The Palestinian occupants of a small village in the Galilee try to balance their traditions against the Israeli military occupation in 1964. Many of the villagers were traumatized as children by the 1948 war and old fears and resentments linger as the village's mukhtar (Khoury) tries to placate the occupiers. Meanwhile, the Israelis are investigating forged work passes and a village murder leads to trouble for everyone. Arabic and Hebrew with subtitles.
