Synopsis

The pomegranate is the fruit of the land, a symbol of rejuvenation and rebirth. It is also a euphemism for a hand grenade.

From the Academy Award-nominated director of 'The Restless Conscious: Resistance to Hitler Inside Nazi Germany, 1933 - 1945' comes a suspenseful, multi-layered documentary centered on a group of young people born into a violent, on-going war. They are young Palestinians and Israelis, caught in the duality of the pomegranate: will they embrace rebirth and each other's humanity, or will they pull the pin on the grenade?
