From Jerusalem to Haifa, stopping by Acre, Bethlehem and Ramallah, we travel across Israel and the West Bank to meet with Palestinian women shaping the cultural landscape. They are artists, chefs, performers, entrepreneurs, designers... and they tell us about their life, culture and identity in a divided and much disputed territory. The documentary features how these young women reinvent today their political and cultural battles.
