Loading...
Arab Israeli filmmaker Ebtisam Maraʻana grew up in Paradise (Fureidīs in Arabic), a small fishing village overlooking the Mediterranean.

This film follows the director's attempt to recreate the village's lost history, including the story of her childhood hero Suuad, the legendary local "bad girl" who was imprisoned as a PLO activist in the 1970s and banished from the community.
