Midnight Your Time

Synopsis:
I'm sure that in the context of the plight of the Palestinian people, asking your own Father to lie to your own Mother must seem like terribly small beer. every Thursday at 3am, Judy talks to her daughter on a webcam. Judy calls from Islington; her daughter is in Palestine. a retired lawyer, Judy is casting around for ways to occupy herself: with a women's peace league; with Mr and Mrs Prabhakar; with her daughter's life. Viciously funny but ultimately heartbreaking, it asks who we owe responsibility to, and how we should best live in the world.
