A House In Jerusalem

Young Rebecca is forced to move with her father from the UK to Jerusalem, in the hope that a new beginning can help her heal from her mother’s sudden death. Soon after settling into an old house Rebecca befriends Rasha, a Palestinian girl only she can see.

Is Rasha a figment of Rebecca’s imagination or is she connected to the home’s troubled history?

This poignant tale explores memory, loss and the longing for home amidst the complexities of relations between Israel and Palestine.
