Miral
Drama
 
"Miral" is the story of four women whose lives intertwine in the starkly human search for justice, hope and reconciliation. The story begins in war-torn Jerusalem in 1948 when Hind Husseini opens an orphanage for refugee children that quickly becomes home to 2,000 orphans. One of the children is 17-year-old Miral who arrived at the orphanage 10 years earlier, following her mother's tragic death. On the cusp of the Intifada resistance, Miral is assigned to teach at a refugee camp where she falls for a fervent political activist, Hani, and finds herself in a personal battle that mirrors the greater dilemma around her: to fight like those before her or follow Mama Hind's defiant belief that education will pave a road to peace. Rated PG-13 for thematic material, and some violent content including a sexual assault.
