Shadi, an architect living in Italy, returns to his paternal home in Palestine for the first time in years, to honour the Nazareth tradition of hand-delivering his sister’s wedding invitations with his father Abu Shadi, a divorced school teacher in his mid-60s. As the estranged pair spend the day together, their personal antagonism along with political, cultural and generational differences emerge.
