It is 1947, and Beit Daras, a quiet village in Palestine, surrounded by olive groves, is home to the Baraka family. Eldest daughter Nazmiyeh looks after her widowed mother, prone to wandering and strange outbursts, while her brother Mamdouh tends to the village bees. Their younger sister, Mariam, with her striking mismatched eyes, spends her days talking to imaginary friends and writing. When Israeli forces gather outside the town’s borders, nobody suspects the terror that is about to descend. Soon the village is burning, and amidst smoke and ash, the family set out on the long road to Gaza, in a walk that will test them to their limits.
