Synopsis
A documentary film that follows the story of three men of different faiths and their lives in Israel and Palestine. The story explores each man’s choice of non-violent action amidst a culture of overwhelming violence.

Their three stories are interwoven through the major events of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, starting with the 1972 massacre at the Munich Olympics and following through to the assassination of Yitzchak Rabin and the second Intifada.

Sami, Yonatan and Ahmad each describe the events from their unique perspective, interjecting personal reflections and explaining how these events led them to become involved in the non-violence movement.
