Synopsis

Joseph, an 18-year-old musician preparing to join the Israeli army for his mandatory military service, lives at home in a comfortable suburb of Tel Aviv with his parents, France-born physician Orith and Israel-born army commander Alon Silbers. A blood test for Joseph’s military service reveals that he is not their biological son; during the Gulf War Joseph was evacuated from a clinic along with another baby; both were given back to the wrong families. While the Palestinian Joseph went to Tel Aviv with the Silbers, their actual Jewish son, Yacine was brought to the West Bank by the Arab couple, Said and Leila. The revelation turns the lives of the two families upside-down, forcing them to reassess their respective identities, values and beliefs.
