It’s summer 2014. Muna (Mouna Hawa, In Between BJFF2017), an Israeli-Arab photographer living in Tel Aviv, has just been chosen to represent Israel in a prestigious international photography exhibition in Paris. Her father and his neighbors in their Arab village are against Muna’s participation, as are the Jewish critics who don’t want to an Arab-Israeli representing them, especially in wartime. Muna, caught between two worlds is determined to forge her own path, even if it means upsetting the relationship with her Jewish boyfriend, Yaniv. Produced by musician Mira Awad (Arab Labor, BJFF2008) and inspired by her own story.
