Synopsis

It's the story of M, a European-based Palestinian filmmaker who is shooting a documentary in Palestine about the 1948 expulsion of Palestinians from their homeland. He receives a phone call from his sister in Nazareth telling him that his nephew has killed a man during a scuffle and the whole family is now in danger. He is advised to fly back to Europe, or at least to stay away from Nazareth. But he refuses and decides to go back home at three o’clock in the morning.
