Summary
Provides a personal meditation on what it means to be Palestinian. Examines the effect of the political impasse in the Middle East on the identity of the Palestinian people. The film is in two parts-- the first "Nazareth, personal diary" is a faux-documentary showing daily life in Nazareth, the second half, "Jerusalem, political diary", follows Suleiman as a filmmaker looking for inspiration in Jerusalem after a 12 year absence
