Amine Jaafari (Ali Suliman) is an Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society. He has a loving wife, an exemplary career, and many Jewish friends. But his picture perfect life is turned upside down when a suicide bombing in a restaurant leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife Sihem (Reymonde Amsellem), who also died in the explosion, was responsible. Convinced the official police report is wrong, Amine completely rejects their accusation but his conviction is shaken when he receives a posthumous letter from Sihem confirming her role in the carnage.

Shattered by the revelation and desperate to understand how he could have missed any signs of his wife’s murderous intentions, Amine abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and enters the Palestinian territories in pursuit of the zealots he believes recruited her. Once there, he plunges into ever more dangerous places and situations where he is unaccepted and unwelcome. Determined and throwing caution to the wind, he presses on seeking answers to questions he never thought he’d be asking. By the end of his journey, Amine is forced to confront a deeper, more appalling truth than he had ever expected; his inability to see who his wife truly was and his failure to understand the reality that created her.
