In an isolated valley far from the conflict, a Palestinian family ekes out a precarious existence among abandoned buildings near Um El-Fahem. A tyrannical father (Hussein Yassin Mahajne) rules over his wife and three children while obsessing over building an illegal water pipeline that could be confiscated if found by a patrol. Marked by impressive and expressive widescreen imagery, this is a masterfully shot allegory of repression and control in a harsh landscape that examines the dynamic of power within a family stretched to the breaking point. An archetypal tale with extraordinary performances from non-professonals.
