The role of Israel in American Jewish identity is challenged when Simone Zimmerman and Eitan join an awakening within the community after they witness Israel’s brutal treatment of the Palestinian people first-hand. Heartbroken and enraged at the older generation of American Jews who raised them to defend the State of Israel at all costs, they join a struggle not just for Palestinian rights but also within the Jewish community, pitted against those engaged with a mass mobilization who ensure that young American Jews remain pro-Israel. Their journey reflects a sweeping grassroots change within the community that will have major implications on how an ancient religion is evolving, and on America’s deep yet controversial relationship with Israel. Featuring Noam Chomsky, Cornel West, Peter Beinart, Noura Erakat, Abe Foxman, and Lara Friedman. This film is eligible for theYouth Arts Access Fund.
