Rotten Tomatoes


Filmmaker Elia Suleiman travels to different cities and finds unexpected parallels to his homeland of Palestine. He is seeking an alternative homeland, only to find that Palestine is trailing behind him. The promise of a new life turns into a comedy of errors in that however far he travels, from Paris to New York, something always reminds him of home. This is a comic saga exploring identity, nationality and belonging, in which Suleiman asks the fundamental question: where is the place we can truly call home?
