Ayed Morrar, an unlikely community organiser, unites Palestinians from all political factions and Israelis to save his village from destruction by Israel’s Separation Barrier.
Victory seems improbable until his 15-year-old daughter, Iltezam, launches a women’s contingent that quickly moves to the front lines. Struggling side by side, father and daughter unleash an inspiring, yet little-known movement in the Palestinian Territories that is still gaining ground today.
In an action-filled documentary chronicling this movement from its infancy, Budrus shines a light on people who choose nonviolence to confront a threat yet still remain virtually unknown to the world.
