This is the biographical epic that addresses 40 years of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival 2010.
At the age of 7, Miral is sent to a Jerusalem orphanage after her Palestinian mother’s death. Brought up safely inside the orphanage’s walls, she is na√Øve to the troubles that surround her. Then, at the age of 17, she is assigned to teach at a Palestinian refugee camp where she is awakened to the reality of her people’s struggle.
When she falls for political activist, Hani, she finds herself torn between the fight for the future of her people and her teacher’s belief that education is the road to peace.
