Winner of the Critics' Prize at Cannes, this debut feature from Palestine stuns with its powerful narrative, vivid performances and striking widescreen compositions. Abu Shukri and his family have settled in a desolate valley, living on charcoal the mother and daughters ceaselessly produce. But when running water arrive at home, the women begin to thirst for more freedom; for food, for love, for desire, for life.
