When 13-year-old Hayaat's grandmother falls gravely ill, she knows that there's only one thing to do. She vows to bring back a handful of soil from Setti Zeinab's ancestral home in occupied Jerusalem, where her grandmother yearns to return to. Taking along her friend Samy, a daredevil troublemaker who dreams of playing football in Italy, they leave their homes in Bethlehem pretending they are going to school. It is the most dangerous and eventful journey of their lives. They must cross the Wall that divides the land with its watchtowers, checkpoints, barbwire and heavy iron gate.
