American graduate student Ashley Wells and her fiancé Najid, a Palestinian Christian, are thrown together with enemies in a Jerusalem hospital following a violent demonstration. An Israeli soldier and Najid’s brother Sami forgive each other, leading other adversaries to seek amends, including a helicopter pilot rocketing and vaporizing a 20 year-old’s family in Gaza.
This group of traumatized young adults share their stories in a series of forums in Jerusalem and America, all the way to the United States Senate. Despite facing hostility and attempted assassination, they try to prove that peace, justice and redemption is possible in the Holy Land.
Will Ashley and Najid ever marry or will their lives go up in flames and tragedy?
