The original title for this film is Etz Limon. Watching this film was like watching a true story. I believed in all the characters and thought they were real. It was like going on a journey with them all. Hiam Abbass is brilliant and gave a fantastic performance. The cinematography is well done and gives us a glimpse into what the country is like. There are many people facing this dilemma.
