Troubled Water

This film follows the Goren family over a period of 15 years as they are removed from the fishing village in the Israeli settlement of Dugit, located on the north of the Gaza Strip, near the Israeli border. In 1984 the Israeli government designated this area to establish a fishing village until it was dismantled in 2005. At first the settlers worked together with the Palestinian fishermen, but political tension made it increasingly difficult to maintain a normal relationship with their Palestinian neighbors. As the settlers are confronted with the growing number of suicide attacks and as the work on the security wall around Gaza progresses, the desire of both sides to leave increases.
