Documentary focusing on the historic town of Bethlehem. Leila Sansour, the film-maker and former resident of Bethlehem, intends to tell the story of the demise of her home town but instead is persuaded to stay in the place she always longed to leave. Things change for Leila when her last surviving relative in the area persuades her to start a campaign to save the city. What begins as an informative documentary and a tribute to her late father gradually turns into a seven-year-long campaign to save the city and ensure the survival of its multi-faith society.
