Title from feature.
"Award-winning, Egyptian filmmaker Nadia Kamel's heritage is a complex blend of religions and cultures. Her mother is a half jewish, half Italian Christian who converted to Islam when she married Nadia's half Turkish, half Ukrainian father. Prompted by the realization that her 10-year-old nephew Nabeel is growing up in an Egyptian society where talk of culture clashes is all too common, she decides to let her mother, Mary Rosenthal, share their diverse family history. But, as she and mary weave their way through the family's fairytales, they bump into the silence around old prejudices concerning the estranged Egyptian Jewish branch of their family living in Israel since 1948. Inspired to further challenge the boundaries between cultures, religions and nationalities that are used to divide us, Kamel travels, along with her mother and nephew, to Israel and Italy and confronts fears and prejudices along the way."--Container.
