A wistful film on the love of homeland.

Video artist Nurit Sharett recounts her childhood memories and converses with her Palestine-born parents who grew up in the British Mandate years.  They both took part in realizing the Zionist dream of establishing the State of Israel, a dream now shattered before their eyes.

Nurit, a granddaughter of Moshe Sharett, retells the story of her great-grandfather's immigration from the diaspora to the land of Israel in 1882.  She reviews the political philosophy of her grandfather, who spent two years of his childhood in an Arab village north of Ramallah and who, as an Israeli leader championing peace, was ousted from his position as foreign minister because of his opposition to the initiation of the 1956 Sinai War.
