    The Film

    What can be done when civilized societies differ and their differences are profound? Despite incremental progress, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza continues to cut the fabric of this small part of the world like a knife, dividing everyone and everything. Filmmaker Tom Hayes crosses borders and checkpoints to uncover the conflicting opinions and policies of the people who seem unwilling to share this land — and yet are unable to let go.
