Film Description:
"Chloé is a young Canadian doctor working in a West Bank refugee camp, where she monitors the pregnancies of young Palestinian patients under the supervision of Michaël, a French obstetrician. Between checkpoints and stray bullets, Chloé learns about war, and those who bear its burden: Rand, pregnant with her first child; her eldest brother Faysal, a passionate member of the resistance with whom Chloé falls in love; their younger brother Safi, who dreams of leaving Palestine; and Ava, the young Israeli soldier who lives upstairs from Chloe in Jerusalem. Torn between the two sides of the conflict, wrapped up in the absurdity of the struggle, Chloe tries as best she can to build bridges... until the conflict draws her into its cycle of violence and she internalizes the conflict."
