A filmmaker stumbles across film reels from a long-lost PLO archive seized by Israel in the 1982 Lebanon war. The deeper she digs, the more she comes into conflict with Israel’s defense apparatus, which denies possessing additional footage. Will she manage to wrestle back untold history, or will the reels forever remain buried?
