SYNOPSIS: Haneen, a woman in her mid 60s lives alone in a Palestinian city, estranged from her husband and son. Haneen, the name itself meaning ‘nostalgia’, waits daily for replies to letters that remain unanswered, living past and present in solitude. On befriending Salem, a boy from the neighborhood whom she finds stealing fruit in her garden, she appears to develop a new spark of life.
