Plot & Details

Italian director Roberto Faenza creates this complex psychological drama about love and tragedy in the cultural minefield of the Middle East. Thirteen years ago, Asya (Juliet Aubrey) and Adam (Ciaran Hinds) witnessed the violent death of their three-year old son in London. Though the couple eventually moved to Tel Aviv, Asya never fully recovered from the misfortune, growing emotionally distanced from her husband and teenaged daughter Dafi (Clara Bryant). When young Frenchman Gabriel (Stuart Bunce) appears, however, Asya comes to believe that the youth is her dead child. Though Adam is simply happy that his wife is laughing again, the bond between Gabriel and Asya soon starts to navigate that disquieting gray area between parental love and carnal passion. Then, just as suddenly as he appears, he mysteriously disappears in his grandmother's old Morris, driving the utterly distraught Asya to search the ends of Israel for him. Meanwhile, Dafi falls for gentle Palestinian mechanic Na'im (Erick Vazquez), though their young love is tested by cultural misunderstandings and prejudice.
