Synopsis:

Salma, a 45 years old widow from a small Palestinian village in the West Bank, finds herself fighting the Israeli Minister of Defense who built his house on the green line border between Israel and the Occupied Territories on the edge of Salma's lemon grove. Soon enough the Israeli authorities claim that the grove is a threat to the security of the minister as terrorists can hide amongst the trees and they order that the trees be cut down. Salma, who lives on her own, decides that she will fight for her trees. From this decision onwards a dramatic, engaging, very funny story evolves all the way to the Israeli High Court.
