Sami is an Israeli Palestinian who lives in Jerusalem with his wife and son. One day he travels with his family to his native village to attend his brother’s wedding. The next day—with no explanation—the village is put under lockdown by Israeli soldiers. With each day of confinement, the villagers grow more restless and angry. Tensions and tempers flare. And Sami, cut off from his job, friends and home, watches helplessly as his life falls apart.
