Ten years earlier, fleeing a scandal involving his older daughter Gamila, Abu Shukri, a middle-aged Palestinian man, moved his wife and children out of town. Now they're squatters at an abandoned Israeli military outpost sheltered in a dusty, arid valley. There the family scratches out a living by illegally cutting down wood from a nearby forest and burning it to make charcoal.
