A chronicle of Hind Husseini`s effort to establish an orphanage in Jerusalem after the 1948 ArabIsraeli War, the Deir Yassin Massacre, and the establishment of the state of Israel.
Jerusalem, 1948. On her way to work, Hind Husseini (Hiam Abbass) comes across 55 orphaned children in the street. She takes them home to give them food and shelter. Within six months, 55 had grown to almost 2,000, and the Dar Al-Tifel Institute was born.
In 1978, at the age of 5, Miral (Freida Pinto) was sent to the Institute by her father following her mother`s death. Brought up safely inside the Institute`s walls, she is nave to the troubles that surround her. Then, at the age of 15, she is assigned to teach at a refugee camp where she is awakened to the reality of the Palestinian refugees. When she falls for Hani, a militant, she finds herself torn between the First Intifada of her people and Mama Hind`s belief that education is the road to peace.
