This thoughtful documentary attempts to address existential Palestinian concepts of exile, return, and the dream of the homeland. Abu Nizar, after more than a half a century exile in Morocco, recalls the finest details of "home," despite the hardships of alienation. Husni, an artist, is also in permanent search for an affinity with the place he inhabits. Munira, an actress, refuses to be marginalized. For Arafat, the image of Palestine remains romantically "filled with the Jaffa oranges."

Dir.: Ghada Terawi, Palestine, 2006, 33. min
