In 1994, Amos Gitai returned to Israel after the self-imposed exile that followed the controversial reaction to his 1982 film Field Diary. The election of progressive Yitzhak Rabin offered hope, and this lm begins with footage Gitai shot at that time. Rabin would be assassinated in 1995, and tumultuous uncertainty in the region remains, yet Gitai recognises people on both side of the Israeli-Palestinian divide who want to see an end to the conflict, among them human rights activists, mourning mothers and ex-conscripts to the Israeli army. There is hope without naivety here, an acknowledgement of the people working for peace while they are denied it by politics and history.
