A powerfulm by a French-Lebanese filmmaker about an Arab-Israeli doctor shocked to discover that his wife is the suicide bomber who killed 17 people, many of them children, in a Tel Aviv café. Most of the film consists of his physical and spiritual journey to try to find out why such a loving person as his wife committed such a terrible deed.
