A movie about a Palestinian girl's struggle against patriarchal, traditional conditions in a village in the 1940s. At the same time, armed troops invade her and other villages, threatening to kill them if they don't leave. Farha flees to a pantry and witnesses the Nakba (Arabic, "catastrophe") - the beginning of a brutal occupation. The story of Farha - like that of many other Palestinians - is one of displacement, murder and grief. The film impressively shows a perspective of powerlessness.
