The film follows 27 Israelis and Palestinians as they participate in an extraordinary dialogue workshop organized by the Parents Circle-Families Forum (PCFF) – bereaved Palestinian and Israelis for Peace and Reconciliation. The project’s goal is to acknowledge the narrative of the other. Among them include Orthodox Jews and religious Muslims, settlers, ex-soldiers in the Israeli army, ex-security prisoners, citizens who live close to the Gaza border, Kibbutz members, second-generation Holocaust survivors, nonviolent activists and more. Each holds a historical truth; each and every one carries his own emotional load. Ben Mayor documents all the meetings and escorts the participants back home when they return to their families and face the complicated reality.
Funding for Whidbey Island Jewish Community was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Special Initiatives Fund of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.
