Now she must come to terms with what's right and whats smart in a world where social media runs rampant, everyone has a camera in their pocket, and acts of terrorism have become normal.
Our film tells the story from both sides of the border and ultimately presents a message of peace, tolerance, hope and responsible communication within the Israeli Palestinian conflict.
