Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Censored by Israeli television, director Amos Gitai's controversial documentary tells the story of a West Jerusalem house with a most fascinating history. Originally the dwelling of a Palestinian doctor, the home was abandoned when the Arab-Israeli War broke out in 1948. Subsequently declared "vacant" by the Israeli government, the home was rented to Jewish-Algerian immigrants in 1956. Flash forward, and a university professor purchases the home with the intention of transforming it into a patrician villa.
