This work focuses on a Palestinian family from the village of Ein Hod, which was emptied of its inhabitants by the newly formed state of Israel in 1948. The narrator, Amal, is born into that family in a UN-administered refugee camp in Jenin, where her family would eventually die waiting--or fighting--to return to their beloved Palestine.
