In early 2013 Israeli singer-songwriter David Broza arrives in predominantly Palestinian East Jerusalem for an unprecedented project. Following his lifelong dream to record songs with musicians from Palestine and Israel, Broza begins an eight-day session in the studio of Sabreen - the legendary Palestinian band. During the recordings, the musicians find opportunities to share their life stories and learn surprising truths about one another. A story of musical bridge building offering an alternative to the decade-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
