Jérusalem, 1948. Alors qu’elle se rend à son travail, Hind, une jeune femme palestinienne, recueille un groupe d’enfants victimes d’une attaque israélienne. Ainsi naquit l’institut Dar Al Tifel, un pensionnat pour enfants palestiniens.
En 1978, Miral, fillette de 7 ans est conduite par son père Jamal à l’institut après le suicide de sa mère.
Les années passent et à 17 ans, Miral se trouve à l’heure des choix : partagée entre la défense de la cause de son peuple par la force, et l’idée, inculquée par Hind, que l’éducation est la seule solution.

Jerusalem, 1948. On her way to work, Hind Husseini comes across 55 orphaned children. She takes them home to give them food and shelter. Within six months, 55 have grown to almost 2000, and the Dar Al-Tifel Institute is born. At the age of 7, Miral is sent to the Institute by her father following her mother’s death. Brought up behind the safety of the Institute’s walls, she is naïve to the troubles that surround her. Then, at the age of 17, she is assigned to teach at a refugee camp where she is awakened to the reality of her people’s struggle. When she falls for a political activist, Hani, she finds herself torn between the fight for the future of her people and Mama Hind’s belief that education is the road to peace.

________________

Gerusalemme, 1948. Mentre si reca al lavoro, Hind Husseini si imbatte in cinquantacinque orfani. Li porta a casa sua, li nutre e offre loro un posto dove stare. Nel giro di sei mesi, da 55 i ragazzini ospitati sono diventati quasi duemila: è la nascita dell’istituto Dar Al-Tifel. All’età di sette anni, dopo la morte della madre, Miral viene mandata all’istituto dal padre. Crescendo al sicuro tra le mura dell’istituto, Miral è inconsapevole della sofferenza che la circonda. Solo a diciassette anni, quando viene assegnata come insegnante a un campo profughi, apre gli occhi sulle tribolazioni della sua gente. Quando si innamora dell’attivista politico Hani si ritrova combattuta tra la lotta per il futuro della sua gente e la fede di mamma Hind nell’educazione come unica via per la pace.
