Director Annemarie Jacir uses a simple road trip around Nazareth to explore the different 'truths' of life as seen by Palestinians in Israel. Father and son (as are the actors), are hand delivering invites to a wedding; Abu Shadi - who has lived here all his life - and Shadi - who now lives in Italy - argue about their different views of how to survive, about what is important; about pragmatism and idealism.
