“The Lemon Tree”
A film by Israeli director Eran Riklis

A Palestinian widow stands up against her new neighbor, the Israeli Defense Minister, when he decides that her lemon grove poses a risk to his safety and must be uprooted.  With a young Palestinian lawyer, she takes her case all the way up to the Israeli Supreme Court.  Her courage earns her the sympathy of the Defense Minister’s wife, challenges the conservative social values of Palestinian society, and exposes the complex relations between Israelis and Palestinians today.
