From Eran Riklis, award-winning director of Lemon Tree, comes Zaytoun, a film about an unlikely friendship that develops between Yoni, an Israeli combat pilot shot down over Beirut during the 1982 Lebanese Civil War, and Fahed, a young Palestinian boy from a refugee family who is one of Yoni's captors.|
Fahid wants to travel to his family's ancestral village to plant an olive tree in memory of his father, who has recently been killed by a bomb. Despite Fahed's hatred of Yoni, he decides he can use Yoni to realize his dream and the two embark upon a dangerous trip through the no man's land between Lebanon and Israel.
