Welcome To Ramallah

Welcome To Ramallah
It's late afternoon when a Jewish woman arrives at her sisters' home in the occupied city of Ramallah. Dusk settles and with the call to prayer come neighbours, an uncle and nephew, to greet the new arrival. as night falls an unexpected curfew prompts the sharing of old stories that threaten to tear apart the fragile harmony of the sisters' memories.
