For the first time in Israeli history, a group of Arab and Jewish parents decides to establish a cooperative binational, bilingual school inside an Arab village. The film follows the school’s first year, and, through the personal stories of its children, parents and teachers, portrays the complicated and fragile nature of co–existence in modern Israel.
