In her early twenties, Succession actress Hiam Abbass left Palestine for Europe in order to follow her dreams of becoming an actor. She left behind her mother, grandmother and seven sisters. Some 30 years later she makes the journey back with her filmmaker daughter Lina. Using archival footage, photographs and poetry, they excavates her family’s history and the generations of women who each had to make difficult decisions regarding their future. As Hiam and Lina reconnect with their homeland, we discover a moving story of motherhood, fractured identity and lost homes, made with warmth and humour.
