Director: Miya Hatay, Israel, 2016, Hebrew, Arabic w. subtitles, 84 min.
Bina arrives at the hospital after her son Ulli has been severely injured in a stabbing attack. This is the first time she has seen him since he became secular and lost contact with his family. At the hospital, Bina meets Amal. While Meir, Ulli’s father searches for spiritual answers and ways to revive Ulli, the two despondent women begin to bond. However, Amal has a secret. She is hiding the fact that she is Palestinian, and is refraining from telling Bina and Meir that she is their son’s lover. As they wait for Ulli to awaken, they all learn about truth, faith, and empathy. Also, that love can and maybe should replace the fear of the unknown.
