Elia Suleiman flees Palestine in search of a land of welcome and realises that as far as he travels, from Paris to New York, his homeland follows him like a shadow. A burlesque tale exploring belonging, in which Elia Suleiman asks a fundamental question: where and how can one feel "at home"?

Elia Suleiman lives in Nazareth, alone in a big house. Her neighbour devoutly looks after her lemon tree. Even if he does so without being asked, and he pockets the lemons. But the director is in any case going abroad to promote his new film project... which we are just watching. He is going to Paris and New York, visiting these foreign megacities and observing with attention what is happening there. But the fact is: his origin follows him like a shadow at every step he takes.

Ten years after his last film, Palestinian director Elia Suleiman presented his new opus in competition at the Cannes Film Festival where he received a Special Mention. This time he directs his political gaze beyond the borders of his home country - to understand, as he says in his interviews, that the world is in fact a "microcosm of Palestine". Everywhere the police state is gaining ground, everywhere the absurd is gaining strength. In this way Suleiman becomes a mute and astonished observer. The comic force of this film emanates from this source. It is not for nothing that the Palestinian director is often compared to Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati. A political comedy about identity, nationality and homeland that combines entertainment, intelligence and poetry.
