Synopsis

Drama following a Palestinian mother and son who are hoping to find a better life in America. When bank worker and single mother Muna Farah (Nisreen Faour) receives an American green card through the Diversity Immigrant Visa scheme, she and her son, Fadi ((Melkar Muallem), leave their home, feeling their future will be brighter away from their daily trials involving Israeli soldiers, checkpoints and regime. When they reach their destination, Muna is disappointed to find that, despite her qualifications, she is only able to get a job at a fast food restaurant. The situation gets worse when the outbreak of the Iraq war leads to prejudice against Muna and Fadi but will they ultimately find the better life they were looking for?
