This documentary profiles two young American Jews, Simone and Eitan, who become disillusioned with Israeli policies after service to the state. They join the movement of young American Jews battling the old guard over Israel’s centrality in American Judaism and demanding freedom for the Palestinian people. Their stories, combined with appearances from scholar-activists like Noam Chomsky and Cornel West, reveal a generational divide in the American Jewish community as more young Jews question the narratives their synagogues and Hebrew school teachers fed them as children.
