Susya is a Palestinian village in the Occupied West Bank, where territorial disputes with Israeli soldiers and settlers are part of the daily routine. Every walk with the sheep is like a negotiation over the remaining pastures, resistance means persevering, telling one’s own story, evoking the past or a time to come. The film follows some of the inhabitants of Susya through their day-to-day lives: fragments, mere hints that form an open space of meaning.
