For My Father
Underwritten by Barbara and Martin Fishman
A spellbinding story of a young Arab who volunteers for a suicide bombing mission in an effort to redeem his family’s honor. When the switch fails to detonate, he finds himself stranded in a Tel Aviv neighborhood over a weekend. During that brief period, he develops deep and profound connections with three Israelis whose lives intersect with his. We learn that all these characters are imperfect people with more in common than would have been imagined. This is a story of humanity in a potentially inhuman situation.
