Contains brief images of injury, mild bad language

Armed with her camera and a rundown family car that keeps breaking down, Bethlehem-born Leila Sansour returns to her childhood home to shoot a film about a town in crisis. Just few months into the project, her life and the film take an unexpected turn when Leila's cousin Carol, her last relative in town, persuades her to stay and start a campaign to save the city from irredeemable separation.

This screening will be hosted by Forth Valley Palestine Group and Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign in macrobert arts centre's Playhouse and will be introduced by Reverend Dr Alasdair Black.
