Watch the trailer.

This first narrative by Mai Masri, a veteran documentarian, focuses on the plight of a newly married Palestinian woman who lands in an Israeli prison after being wrongly accused of aiding a terrorist. After finding that she is pregnant, she fights to keep the child rather than put him up for adoption, ultimately forming a family with her fellow inmates. This film highlights the experience of female political prisoners and the bonds of friendship that dissolve class, ethnic, and religious barriers. Film description by Samirah Al-Kassim. (Dir.: Mai Masri, Palestine/France/Jordan/Lebanon, 2015, 103 minutes, DCP, Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles)
