Sami travels from Jerusalem to his home village in Palestine to attend his older brother’s wedding, accompanied by his wife and child. After the ceremony concludes, the town is placed under siege by Israeli soldiers without warning, throwing Sami into an unexpected situation where he’s cut off from the outside world.
