Nadia's Friends

Nadia and Chanoch used to share the same desk in their class in Kfar Haroeh elementary school. Over the course of their eight years together, Chanoch was never conscious of the difference between them – Chanoch, a religious Jew, born and raised in Kfar Haroeh and Nadia – an Arab Muslim, born to the Abu – Isa family who lived near Kfar Haroeh village. Nadia and Chanoch’s class consisted of kids from all kinds of backgrounds – Jews and Arabs, religious and non-religious, from European origin and from North African origin, from politically right and left families. Now going on 40, Chanoch decides to set off on a journey to look for his classmates, and organizes a class reunion for the first time in thirty years. In his meetings with his classmates he realizes that almost all of them have abandoned the principles they were raised on and have chosen new and different ways of life. This is a journey into the past, to what was once the idea of religious Zionism and to what it has become today.
