Storyline

Shortly after the Six-Day War in 1967, Danae Elon's highly educated parents, noted Israeli author Amos Elon, and former correspondent and literary agent Beth Elon, hired a Palestinian man named Musa, the father of eleven children, to take care of their six month old daughter on a daily basis. It was a job he would continue for the next twenty years until she was grown and he was able to save enough money to send all eight of his sons to America for education and career opportunities. The last time Danae saw Musa, in 1991, he proudly showed her the house he constructed in the Palestinian village of Battir. Then, against the mounting tensions of the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian Intifada, the two families lost track of each other. During that time Danae began to realize how much of an influence Musa had on her life and sought to reconnect with him.

the movie was basically well written and acted with a great deal of emotion
10 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was quite intrigued by the subject of the movie which I can relate to from my own life experience when I was in Israel in the early 1970s and befriended a Palastinian man while living in Abu Dis a suburb of Jerusalem . The strong bond between the characters Musa and Danae and her search to find his sons was very enriching and real. Danae's father also provided a stark contradiction when introduced as a leading peace advocate who was heartbroken by the outbreak of the intifala on one side and on the other side taking a typical Israeli position when his daughter suggested a meeting with Musa's sons of asking her if they were terrorists or suicide bombers. By the way that scene drew some very strong emotional outbursts from the audience which was at the United Nations. As an American Jew like Danae I felt that she was torn between the two cultures at once trying to explain to herself the schism which has emerged and grown between the two peoples. however this movie in its own way succeeds on one level to show the human spirit of its characters and their desire to know one another better ...
