Salma Zidane (Hiam Abbas) is a widow who lives simply from her grove of lemon trees in the West Bank's occupied territory. The Israeli defence minister and his wife move next door and the Secret Service orders the trees removed for security. The stoic Salma seeks assistance from the Palestinian Authority, Israeli army and a young attorney, Ziad Daud, who takes the case. While the courts deliberate, the Israelis fence her trees and prohibit her from entering the grove. As the trees wither, the defence minister's wife and, separately, an Israeli journalist, look on Salma with sympathy. In this allegory, does David stand a chance against Goliath? Directed by Eran Riklis.

This is an Arts Festival Out East, 2014 event.
