This film is based on the true story of Ahmad Darwish, an East Jerusalem resident studying in America who lost his permanent residency following the Interior Ministry’s claim that he resided abroad for over six years.

With no travel documents and no ID, Ahmad can neither remain in Israel in violation of the law nor return to America.
