Film Description:
"Ibrahim is an eleven-year-old Palestinian Arab boy living in East Jerusalem. Every day on his way home from the Anglican School in West Jerusalem, an international school with students from over 40 countries, Ibrahim passes through an Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood, a secular Jewish neighbourhood, and an Arab neighbourhood where Palestinians wear traditional dress. His life blends modern-day activities such as soccer and Nintendo with respect for the traditional ways of his grand-father in Galilee, and his nanny in the Old City of Jerusalem."
