A mother films her family’s life while sheltering from Israel’s attacks during the Second Intifada in the West Bank. Her son revisits this past through this footage, delivering a heart-breaking portrait of the anguish of parents forced to choose between their children’s safety and the emotional upheaval of leaving home.
