Back to One's Roots
Yamin is a young Palestinian Druze. His dream was to be an Israeli soldier, but after facing the harsh reality on the terrain and having all romantic notions about fighting for a just cause stripped away, he becomes an ardent opponent to the Israeli Army's policy of recruiting Arabs. This realisation prompts Yamin to not only reject his military ambitions, but to delve into his own history and rediscover his roots.Country: Palestine
