“A sweet and incredibly moving tale filled with moments of truth, poignancy and hope.” – IndieWire

A story to make your heart sing. The renowned dancer and teacher Pierre Dulaine, returns to his native Jaffa for the first time since he left with his Palestinian-French mother and his Irish father, as a child.

He is determined to teach the ‘two step’ to 11 year-old Palestinian and Israeli children in his own bid to overcome political and cultural differences. Not a simple task and he encounters a whole lot of resistance and prejudice along the way whilst setting a significant challenge to the children and their families.

This tender and elegant film proposes a glimmer of hope in the darkness of the Middle East conflict.

In an enclosed city, in which everyone looks and acts the same, one girl sprouts wings. Now she must face her difference and choose between her family and her freedom.
