Synopsis
When Amira, a 17-year-old Palestinian girl learns that her father, who has been incarcerated as a political prisoner his entire life, is sterile, it throws her entire world into confusion. Not only her future, and that of her mother now under threat, but Amira’s entire identity is called into question. The first Jordanian film to be directed by an Egyptian, and winner of two prizes at the Venice Film Festival, Amira raises profound questions about the very notion of self, and asks whether hate is the product of nature or nurture.
