Summary
Amid the daily grind of West Bank checkpoints, the constant nagging of a controlling mother and the shadows of a failed marriage, Muna Farah (Nisreen Faour) merely survives life. But all of that changes when one day she receives a letter in the mail informing her that shes received a U.S. Green Card. Heartbroken at the prospect of leaving her home, yet aware that it may be the only way to ensure a secure future for her son Fadi (Melkar Muallem), Muna decides to quit her dead-end bank job and start anew. Surrounded by the flag-bearing front porches of small town, rural Illinois, Muna and Fadi settle into their new home with Munas sister Raghda (Hiam Abbass), her husband Nabeel (Yussef Abu-Warda) and their three young daughters
