Summary note
Zaid, a Palestinian olive farmer, is thrown in jail for supposedly throwing a stone at an Israeli soldier. His new wife Kamar, who is a folk dancer, throws herself into her work. She clashes with Kais, the lead choreographer of her troupe, but later finds herself attracted to him. She and her family then become embroiled in a land confiscation case, made all the harder because her husband cannot help.
