Al Jisr

A rare glimpse into the life of the residents of the village Jisr E-Zarqa, who cope with daily poverty, deprivation, discrimination and alienation. The film focuses on the stubborn struggle of a group of young, single women, trying to lead the village to a better place.

This is a story of a long lasting survival attempt of a unique village, estranged from the Israeli society, the Arab society and its own location at the sea shore.
