The story follows an 18-year old Jewish woman who finds out her biological mother is Palestinian. The search for her identity takes her to an aunt (Aghdashloo) in Brooklyn, where their immediate bonding causes problems with her adoptive mother (Harden).

Sherry Horman is directing from a screenplay by David Abramowitz and Elizabeth Fein. Doris Kirch produces.

Shooting begins next month in New York and later Israel.
