Grierson award-winning director Iris Zaki enters the heart of Tekoa, an Israeli settlement in the West-Bank, and sits down to talk to the locals. Though fearful at first of the left-wing invader, settlers from various backgrounds gradually open up to her. Their honest, surprising and sometimes funny conversations offer a fresh take on Israeli reality from both sides of the Green Line.
