Synopsis

Salt of this sea

28–year old Soraya, born and brought up in Brooklyn, decides to go to live in Palestine, her family’s country of origin and from where they were forced to flee in 1948.       After arriving in Ramallah, Soraya tries to recover her grandparents’ money frozen in a bank account in Jaffa, but her attempts are thwarted by the bank. She crosses paths with Emad, a young Palestinian who, unlike her, wants to leave his country behind forever. In order to get away from the problems faced by the country and seek freedom Soraya and Emad have no choice but to face their destiny and even resort to breaking the law. The film follows their journey to freedom through the prism of what remains of Palestine.
