Having represented Palestinians in Israeli courts for the past five decades, human-rights lawyer Leah Tsemel is a symbol of the ongoing fight in Israel/Palestine against the occupation. This compelling documentary follows Tsemel as she defends two of her recent clients, one of whom is a 13-year-old boy. Seen by many fellow Israelis as the enemy within, and destined to lose many of her battles, intrepid Tsemel refuses to give up and continues to believe wholeheartedly that a better future for both nations is within their grasp.
