Massachusetts premiere. After fleeing their Bedouin village, Rana’s parents moved just three miles away, to the bourgeois Jewish town of Omer. Now, Rana’s mother, facing terminal breast cancer, is determined to be buried in the town where she made her life and raised her children. The documentary follows her family as they try to fulfill their mother’s dying wish. Rana’s parents’ Arab traditions clash with their children’s Israeli upbringing, providing Rana with a lens through which she examines complications of identity and what it means to call a place home.

Followed by a conversation with director Rana Abu Fraiha and her sister, Yasmeen Abu Fraiha.
