Bushra, Rami, Meital and Bassam lost close family members – their children or parents – and joined the long list of victims of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Each of them carries with them a severe trauma, but they all choose to channel it into personal change and activism for the greater good. The four of them join the "The Parents Circle-Families Forum", an organization that brings together bereaved families from both sides of the fence in the fight to end the conflict, and for achieving a better future based on respect and equality.

Their joint activity causes controversy and condemnation from all sides, but they refuse to give it up. The film charts a journey of hope amid unbearable pain, while illuminating a unique path to personal and social change.
