An Arabic ballad traces the story of a man who claimed ownership of the Moon, and a young Palestinian woman living under the Israeli occupation.

Synopsis

An Arabic ballad traces the story of a man called Dennis M. Hope, who claimed ownership of the Moon in 1980 and thus founded the Lunar Embassy – a company that sells land on a variety of planets and Moons, and makes a connection between his story and that of the director's – a young Palestinian woman living under the Israeli occupation, longing to end the misery of her people in any way possible.
